Tale of 3 tootsie die- cast toys

I recently got 3 tootsie die cast toys at a toy event last week. Those were bought at a toy dealer/ collector which is known for collecting vintage stuffs and selling online.

tootsie toys

L-R pink Chevrolet Cheetah die-cast circa 1963 to 1964 , orange Chicago Mini Orange Porsche 911 circa 1970-1977 and apple green colored military jeep ( probably manufactured late early 1970’s)

As in my previous posts, My own personal collection started when my aunt ( paternal side) gave me about 2 dozen tootsie die cast toys hand- me down from my cousin.

Most of the toys were lost through the decades and some of were stolen by playmates who cannot resists those small cute stuffs.

I think all was lost, until i saw 3 tootsie toys few months ago while cleaning the stock room located near our house attic. Did not expect much from what i bought from the dealer/ friend. Those tootsie die cast toys were pre-owned by someone.

The important story of these toys were the nostalgia and rebuilding one’s personal collection which was lost. I think that the quality of the toys that the company currently selling is not the same.

Tootsie Toys  is still around selling toys online in the United States. But very few toy dealers sell this kind of toys in the country.

Some people love these items, They are durable and colors are very bright ( i hope that they are not painted with lead)

At the online auction / selling site of Ebay would sell these toys from $0.50 a piece to $3.00 per piece, sometimes even more depending on the year, condition, type of car model, rarity and country of origin. Plus shipping fees.

I got the toys at about $6.00 per piece which is on the upper bracket of the price range, I do not mind paying the dealer since i had to consider the freight cost and overhead cost for booth rentals.

It brings me joy for having this 3 toys and wish that additional items will be added in the near future.

Amazing Strawberry Flavored Slick Tight Pomade : Organic and Useful

Men and even women have been styling their hairs for over a millennia . There are early accounts of people in ancient civilizations like Sumerians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans who used stiffening agents for their hairs.

One of the commonly used items are from bees waxes , bear fats, lards and natural oils.

Etymology  of Pomade

 Pomade comes from the word (/pɒˈmeɪd/; French pommade) is a greasy, waxy, or a water-based substance that is used to style hair.

 Pomade gives the user’s hair a shiny, slick appearance, and does not dry it out. It lasts longer than most hair care products, often requiring multiple washes to completely remove. The original pomade of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries consisted mainly of bear fat , lard, lanolin, beeswax and petroleum jelly have been used extensively in the manufacture of modern pomades.

Company Story

It started on September 2014 as a backyard pomade brewer, after numerous test and failure, the brand formulated the right blend to address the needs of sophisticated users of pomade.

It is legally incorporated in July 2015 in Manila, Philippines. The company set its direction to greater heights. With the leadership of its owner Mr. Froilan B. Llavore.

Slick Tight Pomade

Why use Slick Tight Pomade?

This is not my first time to use some kind of pomade , gel, spray or any waxing agents. It had been a fad before. Unlike hair spray or some hair gel products in the local market Slicktight  pomade does not dry, and can last much longer. Pomade can be used to style hair (including mustaches, side burns, and beards), giving it a darker, slicker, shinier look.

I have tried some commercially available brands with little effect. Sometimes, due to the harsh ingredients used in some pomade products plus dirt which accumulates in the scalp can cause dandruff and irritation.

Unlike some pomade products in the market which contain harmful inorganic chemicals and harm the environment.

Slick Tight Pomade is made from organic beeswax, castor oil, petrolatum and essential oils. Since it is concentrated, then you only need a little amount and it can go along way.  One container can last maximum of 6 months or more.

strawberry cream pomade

What makes this product amazing is that it come in different flavors. Strawberry Cream  and Bubble Gum scents seems to be almost the same. I think i should have tried the Cool Mint one.

When my father saw this product, He thought it was some sort of  strawberry jam … Until i opened the container.

How to Use Slick Tight Pomade

I dabbed a pinch of slick tight pomade into my hands and gently apply them in my hair. I prefer my hair to be damp so to spread the pomade evenly.  The application stayed for more than 6 hours without reapplying new pomade. For hair-styling wax or gels, you need to reapply several times a day . This makes me uncomfortable and uneasy.

Another proven trick is can soften the pomade with the help of a blow-dryer before, more so, if you are using a thick one, which will not spread easily in your palms.

I think this is one of the product to look out for this 2018 and a perfect styling partner in any occasion .

Retail Price: Php 350.00 (60 grams) Also available are: All Skool Cola, Cool Mint, Strawberries and Cream, Vanilla Sandalwood, Sport, and Aqua. This come with FREE shipping.

These are also available in some online store like Shoppe for just Php 270.00

They also have some awesome soaps, shampoo and combs and they are locally manufactured.
