The Craze for Collectibles • Dec 1, 2017
Every generation had a collectible toy they went crazy over. For some of us, it may have been Marbles. For others, Pokémon cards. These toys took over the playground, as kids showed off their rare finds and traded amongst each other to fill up their collections. Bedroom shelves became proud displays of your collections. Collecting even became a game in itself! The fun of trading and assembling the whole collection made the product experience so much more exciting and dynamic. And nothing felt better than completing your collection, as you gathered the most generic toys in the collection to the rarest. The thrill of the chase, and the sense of accomplishment when you completed your collection, was all part of the game.
Many of today's toys and games are tech-centric, but collectable toys and traditional play patterns still continue to fascinate. Basic Fun! and its array of collectible toys, allows you to experience the adventure and excitement of building a collection from the ground-up. Toys such as Mash’Ems and Fash’Ems, have collectible sets of your favorite characters from a range of hot licenses like Marvel and Paw Patrol. Mash’Ems will have you wanting to collect them all! And the fun doesn’t stop there. Basic Fun has other awesome collectible toy lines coming out in the new year such as Poopeez and CakePop Cuties.
