Show Notes

That's right, after a grueling 11 episodes, Shelf Life is beginning a new season. This time, there's twice the amount of everything you love! Twice the toys, twice the...boys? Double your fun, double your sadness. We answer listener questions. We remember the SciFi Catalog. We talk about Frida Kahlo for a while for some reason? SHELF LIFE AFTER DARK: Toy Fair 2018 In Review! The hot takes you've been dying for. NOTE: We discussed Playmates' Star Trek figures, but I forgot to mention they had serial numbers on their feet, and they are definitely 4.5" tall--VERY IMPORTANT AND FUN TOYFACTS.
