to you Sir Chase Adventure - Toy Hunter to the Stars and beyond......
Sir Chase's Dating tips for toy collectors, and
all others' real world challenged`
At ease, troops!
Tip number 1:
Try to feign an interest in World affairs... this cannot fail to
impress your date. Of course, try to avoid statements like 'Wow,
George Bush sure is a powerful statesman... I wonder what he collects?'
Tip number 2:
Without fail, ALWAYS count to ten when your date says 'If this stuff
is worth so much, why dont you sell it?'...ONE-tootsietoy TWO-tootsietoy
Tip number 3:
Try not to let on to your prospective spouse that you`ve asked a
friend to watch your collection while you're out. But if you do
let it slip, DO NOT refer to them as 'the babysitter'.
Tip number 4:
Do NOT do your Charlie Weaver Bartender impression in the restaurant,
no matter HOW good it is!
Tip number 5:
Never refer to your collection as 'the kids' ...not even your bally
Tip number 6: Places NOT to go on a first date - Toys'R'Us
closeout sale; 'Toy Story' 1 & 2 double bill; the local yard sales...
all of these should be reserved until AT LEAST the second date,
Tip number 7: When the magic starts to happen, a well-placed
compliment can never fail you. Of course, praise like 'Gee honey,
you remind me of Barbie's best friend Midge!' may result in a quick
end to the evening's bliss.

Dear Adventure Adviser
My neighbour gave me her childhood Barbie doll recently. Do you
know what it might be worth? Picture attached. M.R., Tampa, FL,
Adventure Adviser Output:
Well, the bally machine says: "Value is in the Eye of the Beholder"
...no great puzzlement here, eh what? My mechanical creation means
that your doll has one hard and fast value in the real world ...what
you can get someone to pay for it. My advice, should you wish a

Dear Adventure Adviser
I am an avid collector of Dinky Toys. I already have a fairly sizeable
collection, but am having a lot of trouble trying to find any of
the early aeroplanes (from the 1930s). I would really like them
boxed. Any advice? R.M., Brighton, UK
Adventure Adviser Output:
Well, the bally machine says: "They who seek Dragon's eggs
best be impervious to Time" ...You know, sometimes I wonder
why I cobbled this boiler-plated Beast together, troops! I'd get
more sensible scuttlebutt out of Colonel Wilhelm Schuco after sixteen
gin slings... be that as it may, my mechanical creation tells us
we must be bally patient. Those boxed pre-war Dinky aircraft only
show up once in a blue moon, so expect trouble in establishing their
locale! My advice, place a FREE
