A new week means a new post for Collector of the Week here at The Art of Fatherhood. As a fellow geek and collector of all things Pop Culture I wanted to showcase some cool collections that dads share in our community. We love to see this passion in what people collect. We talk about the latest movies, sports memorabilia, a GI Joe collection and video games that we are enjoying at the moment.
This Week’s Collector – GI Joe Action Figure Collection
This week’s collector is from Darren. Over the holiday week he showed his sons his toy collection when they are visiting family for the holiday. His sons really enjoyed the GI Joe toys.
Over Christmas break we went to my parents home. Not wanting my boys be on their devices I took them up to my parent’s attic to show them my toys from my childhood. There were some old baseball cards and action figures. They immediately gravitated toward my GI Joe collection. They took the box down from the attic and played with them for hours. We took most of those toys home. I know my parents were happy that some of the clutter was removed from their house. lol.
Thanks for sharing your story Darren. It is great that your parents kept your toys so their grandkids could enjoy them.
It can be comic books, bottle caps, records, helmets or whatever you are into! I want to see what your passion is and why you started up that collection. For me, I believe that in each collection lies a better story. I want to share your story! Feel free to reach out to me and share your collection.
