17352225_10155164391274324_4812714555096602596_n

This weeks episode of Marsham Toy Hour is most definitely one of their most interesting ones yet, as they’ve added a fun and hopefully re-occurring game at the end. Another reason why this is a good one is because I am once again joining in on the conversation. They got on the topic of sketching, early days of collecting and George’s newest segment, “Why the #@$% Does this Exist?”. Be sure to catch up and stay tuned at the end for their very first segment of Designers and Dragons.
