Steve Fuller managed to save nearly every one of the toys that his Dad bought him as a kid. That the Miami Antique Toy Show, which he has co-produced for the past 38 years, is the last remaining show of its type in the southeastern United States is sufficient testament to the idea that perpetuating one’s childhood (including a James Bond apprentice-spy childhood) through collecting old toys is basically a good thing. Steve has contributed to Antique Toy World, Hemmings’ Classic Car, NPR’s Says You! and other significant and insignificant media, and has been the TV “Toy Guy” for shows including Extreme Collectors, Auction Kings and Art Deco at Play.
