Since he was really little, my son Colton would watch toy unboxing videos and was fascinated. What do you want to be when you grow up? A kid on YouTube is what he would say. That little dream of his has begun.

Colton is 8 and likes to be in the spotlight. It's funny because despite my being in radio, I actually don't like being in the spotlight. I'm a shy person and in large crowds, I tend to stick near the back - unless I'm in a comfortable or familiar setting. Talking into a microphone in a radio studio is completely different than being in front of large crowds or on TV. Making videos (no matter what they are for) is always a struggle for me. I'm super critical of myself so I overthink everything.

My son is not like that at all. He likes to see himself in videos and hear his voice. He is also an 8-year old trapped in a 30-year old body. He acts like a kid but is even more comfortable around adults. Colton is really funny, super smart and a little boy created to be way better than anything I could have ever come up with on my own.

In a very business-like way, we (Colton's parents) have come together and supported our little boy's dream of being a YouTube star and have started him on his path. The name: ToyBoy36. He chose the name and what toys he wanted to review.

ToyBoy36 is really only looking for one thing...the one thing all kinds want: Free toys.

 

 

By subscribing, think about what you're getting. You're in on the launch of something huge (according to Colton).

I mean, all I wanted was to be a cashier. My dream did come true so who am I to stand in the way of anyone else - including my son.
