Dave's Vintage Toy Room | Holochronicles #showmeyourcollection

David has a fun room filled with all sorts of vintage toys. There's a bit of everything in there - and a lot of Star Wars. Like many of us, David's collection comes from a fond nostalgia for the toys of his youth. So how did it all start for him?

"I started seriously collecting vintage toys about 7 years ago, so a relative newcomer in this world. Although my love of vintage and collecting goes way back. For example, I like to restore and fix old things like cars and have a collection of Automobilia. My son also got the bug for cars and so we’d visit toy fairs to find die-cast vehicles for him to play with and I’d spot all these toys from my own childhood. One thing lead to another, and before I knew it I was building a collection of 70s and 80s vintage toys including Action Man, Transformers, Micronauts and of course Star Wars."
