Calling all toy fans in the Pittsburgh area! This Saturday October 13th in Munhall Yello80s will be selling lots of 80s goodness along with many other vendors of vintage toy awesomeness at the Too Groovy Toy Show! Check out the times below and make sure to visit the Facebook page! See you there!
Stumbled onto an Amazing Mumford book at Too Groovy Toys (who, btw, will be having another toy show in the spring so check out the details here): The Amazing Mumford Presents The Magic Weather Show. Remember this guy from Sesame Street? He was voiced by Jerry Nelson and started the show in 1971 but still makes appearances on the Street. His catchphrase, rather than abracadabra, was “A’la peanut butter sandwiches!” Grover was often the assistant. Courtesy Bob Blahloblaw
