    Them Brows are High

    Well well well. I had a bit of a score last week. A new vintage toy store has just opened up reasonably local to me – Vintage Toy Monster. So anyway, I saw a post pop up on the old facebook, and what seemed to be a boxed Highbrow just hanging out in the top…

    Face me, Ape

    Last week I managed to pick up an Apeface, complete with box – no inserts of course we can always upgrade again later. This will now be Apeface number 3 for me. My first, I got from the most unlikely and rare of sources, my Uncle. It was a family holiday to Pontins (yes, that’s…
