The QC Toy Show is back this weekend at the Mississippi Valley Fair Grounds.

Remember when kids played with toys?  I miss those days, don't you? Using your imagination to kill boredom is a skill this generation has lost, unfortunately. I used to spend hours a day with my wrestling figurines or Hot Wheels.  Those were the days.

We can show kids how cool toys actually are by bringing them to the show this weekend.

Toy Show = Nostalgia

You’ll get to see toys that are decades old, as well as brands you may have forgotten about. Their featured vendors will be there with their rare and hard-to-find collectibles, with an emphasis on retro nostalgia and originality.

Maybe you'll find vintage G.I. Joe figures from 1982, Cabbage Patch dolls from 1984, or remember those McDonald’s toys from 1995.

They are sure to bring you back to a simpler time.
