Hello everyone! As the holidays approach, and our Annual Toy Anxiety Daniel S Bracken Jr. Toy Drive and Sidewalk Sale draws near on Saturday, December 6th. It’s time to collect donations for the event. Every year we receive a large pile of toys that are taken by some of our favorite local costuming groups that attend our event and distributed to those in need through local charities and to children at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Every year as our event becomes more well-known, we tend to get messages from people wanting to know how they can contribute. Whether you are local, out-of-state or international, it is possible to do so.
All toys must be brand new and still in their original packaging, no opened or used toys. Please no plush or fast food premium toys though. Toys for older kids and young teens are especially needed. You may also donate cash, which will be used by us to purchase toys that will be donated. We take this seriously, and we promise all cash donations will be used for this purpose by either buying a large selection of cheap toys from our own stock at a non-profit price point, or simply visiting the local Toys R Us.
Here’s how you can donate:
13825 N 32nd St STE #15
Phoenix AZ 85032
No one should feel obligated to do this, but anything no matter how small is appreciated.
- Stop by our store during open hours and drop off any toys you would like to donate.
- Send cash donations via PayPal to email@example.com. It wouldn’t hurt to note with the payment “Toy Anxiety Toy Drive Donation”, but only donations should go to this email address.
- Purchase an eGift Certificate on our Website in the amount you wish to donate. Be sure to include the comment “Toy Anxiety Toy Drive Donation”.
- Send toy or cash donations through the mail to:
All donations must be received before Saturday December 6th in order to be collected in time. All donations are final and non-refundable.
Every year, halloweencostumes.com brings us “Creepy Calculations,” a visual compilation of some of some of Halloween’s freakiest facts. This year is no exception! What are some of the 2014’s most popular costumes? How much money will Americans spend decorating their homes and filling our bellies with sweet candy treats? Who do people trust more to give them costume advice: friends, family, or Facebook??

Chewbacca was forced to step in to break up a fight between Mr. Incredible and Batgirl.
Tensions between the costumed characters spilled over on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame yesterday as Mr. Incredible launched an attack on Batman.
But in astonishing footage, captured by production company FilmOn.com, the character from Star Wars grabs Mr. Incredible in a bid to pull him off his costumed rival.

This Shot-for-Shot Empire Strikes Back Remake Was Made By 480 Fans
Star Wars fans are a wildly devoted bunch, and 480 of them just had their dreams come true. The Empire Strikes Back: Uncut is a shot-for-shot remake of Episode V, composed entirely of 15-second clips filmed and submitted by very creative fans.
This is fun to watch. Each of the scenes are uniquely different—live-action and illustration and puppets and stop motion, really polished (and really not) and totally silly—all seamlessly edited into a full-length feature. And it’s actually the second installment in the experimental series; Episode IV was a huge hit a few years back, so mastermind Casey Pugh took on the monumental task of sifting through thousands of entries for this follow-up.
