Play It Again

Just as one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so is one man’s 1950s-era Howdy Doody doll another man’s Holy Grail. For anyone who’s into reliving the days before kids were all about Android apps and Xbox Kinect, you can get knee-deep in nostalgia at the Miami Antique Toy Show. This convention for collectors is the last antique toy, doll, and collectibles show in the South — so there’s no better place to sniff out a rare trinket or two. Dealers from across the country (and world) lug down their Disco Kens, Kestner dolls, and tin trains to the delight of antique aficionados. Browse Leave It to Beaver board games and Captain Midnight decoder rings. You never know what might pop up in this treasure trove of trinkets, curios, and knickknacks. And if you’re still nursing the pain of the childhood present that got away — Red Ryder BB gun, anyone? — now is your chance to show your parents that you’re too smart to shoot your eye out.
