About Katrina

Toys are my passion!

My name is Katrina Klokkevold and in addition to writing this blog, I own Katrina’s toys and Katrina’s Toy Channel.

I’m a kooky mad scientist who doesn’t cook real meals and eats doughnuts for dinner! I’m too busy appraising toys, creating awesome YouTube toy videos and writing neat-o blog posts for my subscribers!

I love toys: puppets, dolls, bears, plush toys, promotional movie and TV toys, Legos, Bionicles……talking toys, electronic toys, and the list goes on. Welcome to my blog where I discuss all sorts of super fun toys!

How I got started:

A few years ago, I began to sell my mothers toy collection on eBay to help her make ends meet on a limited income. Then, I opened an eBay store and my sales started to skyrocket. Around that same time, I started to write about some of the toys that I had for sale. I found that I loved writing, and I loved research – I still do!

I posted my very first video on you tube in 2011, and believe me, if was very rudimentary! In fact, it’s still posted, and you can dig it up and have a laugh if you wish! I started Katrina’s Toy Channel with the idea that I would post very short videos demonstrating how the toys that I was selling worked.

Over time, my sales dwindled down to a trickle, ( where they currently reside ), and my love for creating videos grew! Today, my focus is video, appraisal,  and blogging. My sideline is selling toys – funny how life evolves and changes!

I do work a “day job” that is in education. The pay leaves me reliant on my You tube Channel, my blog, and my toy sales to survive. If you find it in your heart, please make a donation to support this blog, and my toy channel at paypal.me/katrinastoys.

You may contact me at katrinastoys@gmail.com

Thanks again and happy collecting!

    Hi I would like to know if I can get smarty bear still and the four dvds included?

    You see… I am 27-years old. Born in 1987 and I was one of the fortunate kids to have one.

    At that time I was.staying in puerto Rico with my mom. It was bought and send to me by my father who at the time happened to be in Korea. Washington dc among others due to him being in the army. He recalls making a big sacrifice to buy it and send it to me because it was the big thing at the time. I remember loving my bear but as time pass by..

    We ended up moving to a new home. All my mom was able to get was the bear and left the dvds because it was rats in the house and they were building a nest on top of the closet. My mom was afraid to get the dvds since it was on top of the closet along with the rats and left them.

    As I was growing up I moved to Orlando fl with my dad abd smarty bear stay in Puerto Rico with my mom in the new home. My mom started giving away my toys.due to me growing and others she gave to my.aunts and she has no recollection of what ever happened to smarty bear.

    Now I am pregnant and would love to pass on the bear with dvds to my child but don’t have the bear our tapes. Please help

      Hello.
      As with any collectible antique, you will need to scan eBay, and all of the internet to find a seller with Smarty Bear.
      You may have to buy the DVD’s separately as you locate them.
      The search will be challenging and perhaps fun if you enjoy hunting!

      Good luck with your search!
      Katrina
