I haven’t been around much lately. I’ve been bat-crap-crazy-pants busy with remodeling my kitchen, training for a new class I have to teach next year, and also some fun things too.
I did find time to make a final trip to TRU a couple weeks ago. This Tonka Tiny set is my final diecast purchase from TRU. My girls already have a bunch of these, so I’m keeping them for myself :)
The Tinies aren’t licensed, and so they’re genaric models, but they’re great little toys. They take me right back to the heady days of Micro Machines. Of course I DLM’ed them.
And so we close this final chapter. Countless diecasts purchased from TRU in my lifetime, too many to ever count. It’s fitting that my last ones be micro. I also bought a couple Lego sets that day, which I will feature when they’re assembled. I attempted to make one more visit Friday, which I had heard was to be the last day, but the location I went to was already closed. The end of an era :(
I'll try not to be a stranger for so long again. I am still up to my eyeballs in a kitchen remodel, so I can't make any promises.
