Collectors: Tim’s toy collection

People

They have an untamable passion for gathering as much quirky items as possible: collectors. Meet Tim, who works at the technical department of Volkshotel. He loves toys from the 70s, 80s and 90s. “I think I collected the same things as every other (somewhat nerdy) boy. What makes my collection special is that I still have it.”

Tim: “My collection covers a broad spectrum of toys from the 70s, 80s and 90s, the so-called ‘pop culture’ toys before they were explicitly placed under that name. Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters, Mighty Max, Batman and sporadically a figure from another universe. I think I collected the same things as every other (somewhat nerdy) boy. What makes my collection special is that I still have it today. Stored by a smart father who recognized the value of it and ensured that it was not sold on the first Queen’s Day for a fraction of the value.”

“For the sake of honesty I have to say that today I can no longer bear the name of collector. The world still interests me, I actively look up the information and I can proudly tell about it. However, I no longer expand my collection, worse still: it shrinks. Two years ago I had a pop-up toy shop for two months with my mother. Unfortunately, I sold my more obscure showpieces back then. But I don’t really regret it, because it were two months to remember forever. The reactions of the visitors that came to our shop were so positive that I often think back to it with a smile. Adults abruptly changed into children and walked around the store with big eyes. The name of our store was in that respect also a big nod to that feeling: Weemoeder en Zonen, selling the time that never was.”

“I hope to release that same feeling with this small selection of toys. That young and old can marvel at this showcase, in which they can reside in my little universe, only limited by their own imagination.”
