Big Kids & Toys

You may not be aware, but big kids play with toys as well. Not only do we play with them, but we also like to pose them & take pictures of them in cool action poses. There are many Flickr groups dedicated to just such things. Don't believe me? Go check out some of my favorites:

The Secret Life of Toys

Toys & Models With Backdrops

Toys'r'Uz

Star Wars Toys

or

Skip the Frogman's photostream

I participate in playing with toys myself. Being a Star Wars collector, as well as all kinds of other action figures, I get the urge once & a while to break out the figures & pose them. I have even gone as far as building elaborate backdrops from time to time.

Last night was one of those nights. Here's a few pictures of what I did!





Remember, I have tons of photos & art displayed over on my Flickr. Go check them out if you ever have a moment.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I've been meaning to buy a small Wall-E and do something like this, but somehow whenever I'm at a Disney Store or Toys R Us, I just can't seem to bring myself to spend the $15.

Also, I'm still needing to replace my pocket point-and-shoot.

I've been so much happier since I stopped "collecting" and started actually opening my toys so I could touch them, not just look at them. Of course, sometimes I still buy doubles because I can't stop collecting altogether.

@Gemini-Thanks!

@Chris- yeah, I decided a couple years ago to start opening things. It is a whole lot more fun to play with them. Now, when I have an idea, I just look at what I've got & if i need something, I just crack it open.
