This is not your ordinary child’s play! Travel Channel reveals the big business of buying and selling toys and collectibles in the new original series “Toy Hunter,” premiering with a special one-hour season opener featuring back-to-back episodes on Wednesday, August 15 at 10:00 p.m., ET/PT (regular time slot at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT beginning Wednesday, August 22). This weekly half-hour series follows acclaimed toy dealer and expert Jordan Hembrough, founder of Hollywood Heroes, a New Jersey-based vintage and modern collectibles company, as he travels across the country hunting for the most sought after pieces. For this toy hunter, poking through cramped attics and rummaging around dirty garages to score vintage items is all in a day’s work!
“JEDI SHORE” August 15, 10PM ET/PT
Hembrough knows collectors in New Jersey so finding leads isn’t the hard part. Getting these toy boys to give up the goods at a reasonable price is another story. And if he does discover a life-sized Star Wars showstopper, will he even be able to find a buyer willing to dish out the dough?
“NORTH CAROLINA” August 15, 10:30PM ET/PT
Hembrough journeys to North Carolina—the epicenter of antiques and collectibles. He travels to Bryson City, Asheville and Charlotte, and meets some great people along the way. But these folks drive hard bargains. Will Hembrough leave empty-handed, or will he find toy gold?
