The Boyfriend is finally having the Grand Opening of his store Vinyl Riot.
Vinyl Riot is a designer toy that offers probably the best selection of designer toys out there. I know that I may be a little biased but being a fan of designer toys myself, I do know what other stores carry and the frustration of not being able to find what you are looking for.
Now for those of you not familiar with designer toys here's your crash course.
They originated in Japan and are widely used as a platform for artists to make their drawings come to life. While they can sometimes be a little out there, other toys are just beautiful pieces of art and some are just down right adorable (These are the ones I like the best).
Designer toys were brought to America a few years ago and have been growing in popularity ever since. While designer toy culture is somewhat male dominated and orientated, there are a ton of cute pieces out there to appeal to the female population.
Here are some of my favorite toys that I have in my own personal collection:
I'm so beyond excited for the Grand Opening because I have watched this grow from a hobby, to an idea, to finally a realization of a dream.
It takes so much courage and dedication to start a business and not know if its going to work. And I couldn't be prouder of him. He has really put his blood, sweat and tears into Vinyl Riot.
While designer toys may not seem like your thing, it may surprise you. I wasn't really into his hobby at first but the cuteness of some of the toys won me over & I now have my own little collection of designer toys.
So check out Vinyl Riot and see what it has to offer.
