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 THREE-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 favorites!

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, eh what?

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.

Our Latest Crises Averted:

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, USA

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 professional appraisal of its estimated value, is to enlist the services of Toyzine's ValuePoint e-valuations, by clicking here. On to the next puzzle, troops!

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 Toyzine Wanted Classified by clicking here ("Desperately Seeking Dinky" sounds jolly nice, eh what?) and regularly scour the massive archive of Ebay's online auctions. Farewell until next time, troops!
