“Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way …
“Oh, what fun it is to … hunt with Jordan this Christmas Day!”
That’s right, people, with the holiday season upon us, Jordan is on the lookout for some Yuletide bestsellers of the past, searching for misfit toys that are always in high demand around the holidays.
In fact, the holiday season is the busiest time of year for Jordan and his team. Clients are calling nonstop trying to track down hard-to-find toys from their childhood — and if there is one man for the job, it’s Jordan Hembrough.
After chasing down some hot leads, Jordan takes a trip down memory lane and comes across some of the best vintage Christmas gifts of all time. From a 1964 Creepy Crawlers “Thingmaker” to a 1996 Snacktime Cabbage Patch Kid, Jordan and his team discover toys from every generation, for everyone — especially adults who are still just young at heart.
With the cool crispness of the December air, and Christmas’s festive spirit, now both upon us, what better way to kick off the holiday season than by taking a trip back to your childhood with the toys you love(d)?
Don’t miss Jordan’s all-new holiday special tonight at 9|8c!
And check out these exclusive behind-the-scenes pictures from tonight’s episode.
Ladies and gentleman, this is your pilot speaking. Please make sure your seats and tray tables are in their full, upright and locked position.
Houston, the toys have landed! And there are just too many of them in the state of Texas – but not for Jordan.
Jordan’s first stop while in Houston is to Victor’s house where he has a garage filled to the brim with vintage cars, and there is one in particular that catches Jordan’s eye — the Green Hornet Black Beauty car. The only problem is that it also happens to be Victor’s favorite item. Will Jordan be able to haggle it from Victor’s iron grip?
Next, Jordan is off to Rita’s house where the “heroes in a half shell” he discovers have been living in boxes in a garage instead of an underground, super-secret sewer fortress. The classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figures are definitely worth a pretty penny, but will Jordan offer Rita the right price or will he be sent packing to his home in New Jersey without his little green friends?
Find out on an all-new episode tonight, Nov. 28 @ 9|8c.
Jordan is back and he’s traveling to a galaxy far, far away (ok, not that far — Florida), in hopes of stocking up on Star Wars figurines and replenishing his Star Trek action figure inventory.
Watch as Jordan and his sidekick Steve hit up Tampa, FL, to visit a woman heading towards retirement. Jordan and Steve hope to make a profit off the toys she’s been saving since the 1970s.
To finish up his hunt, Jordan flies solo to Eddyville, IL, where he visits a Star Wars fanatic that has a shed completely stuffed with space toys that Jordan needs to check out.
What classic toys will Jordan come away with in his “Southern Space Chase”? Tune in tonight, November 7 @ 9|8c to find out.
