Welcome to Toy Quest!
Site History


Welcome to Toy Quest, the adventures of my toys. I got this idea one night as I was playing with some Legos. It all started with a Lego shop at home catalog. In it, they had marked some Bionicle toys down and a young friend of mine LOVES Bionicles. I decided to buy him a few things and as I was filling out the order form, I saw a special offer. For $8 I could order a grab bag of $17 or more worth of Lego sets, but I couldn't choose what sets I would get. I decided to order a grab bag and see what I got.

Well, the legos arrived very quickly and I sent my friend his legos and kept the stuff from the grab bag. I had gotten 2 Martian sets and one Soccer goal set. I put them together on a clipboard while I was watching TV with my roommate. She was amused by them. Since I only had one clipboard, I had to put the two martian ships on the board with the Soccer player and his goal. During the commercials, I started goofing off by having the Martians steal the ball and the Soccer player run away in abject terror.

My roommate was very amused. I decided that the antics of my toys might amuse others who visit my websites, so I started taking some pictures with my digital camera of my newest plushie, a Beanie Baby unicorn named Charmer. That's how this all got started. With $8 worth of legos, a camera and a Beanie Baby. I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I enjoy writing them.

BTW (By The Way): You should start your reading with TQ #1 (the first story) to get the idea of what's going on if you are new to Toy Quest. The stories are listed with the newest first.

If you use the side bar links, you will be taken to the first page of the story you selected. If you use the link below, which brings up a table of Toy Quest Stories with a small thumbnail picture from each one, you can select which page of the story you would like to start at (for those stories long enough to have more than one page).

Also, this site is designed to be viewed in IE with the font size set at "Smaller". If you use a different browser or font setting, the pages may not look as good. (To change your font setting, go to View - Text Size - Smaller.) This site should, however, load on different browsers and with different settings.

Note: For those of you who read the Toy Quest stories back in 2003, you will notice that some changes have been made. The stories have been reformatted and are now easier to read, and the new frames should make navigating easier.
