Toys for Tots Auctions – CoolToyReview.com

CoolToyReview has a set of auctions for some rare toy collectibles that will directly benefit Toys for Tots. Canonball recently did a similar auction – see Turning $20.00 into $175.00 for Toys for Tots for more info on that – and it’s a great idea. Toys get into the hands of collectors who are on the hunt, and Toys for Tots (or your favorite charity) get more than the value of the actual collectible. Everyone wins!

Here’s the CTR items:

The auctions end between December 23 and 25th – click through and bid them up!
