Here is Jamie and Sammi's Funko Story:
We actually first got into collecting Funko Pops because of K-Dog & Fish! We were looking for something to do one rainy Saturday afternoon and came across the website for K-Dog & Fish. We thought that collecting Funko POP’s would be a fun hobby we could do together with our son (he is 2 ½ ) so after calling the shop to make see if we could book an appointment, we hopped in the truck and made the short drive to what little did we know would quickly become one of our new favourite spots.
From the very first time we were greeted at the door, we knew this was something special. With a smile so big you could see it through the mask, we were welcomed into the shop for our very own private shopping experience. Talk about VIP! At K-Dog & Fish it doesn’t feel like you’re just a customer at their store, they make you feel like family! We walked around the store just amazed at all the different POP’s you could get (keep in mind we were just starting to collect), taking in the selection and atmosphere at the shop.
Our first Funko POP that started it all was part of a 5 for $50 deal, just one of the amazing deals offered at K-Dog & Fish and seeing as they were all 4 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Casey Jones from the 1990 movie, I can’t pick just one of the Turtles to say was our first (although Michelangelo is my favorite).
When it comes to the type of POP’s we collect we are both suckers for nostalgia. Having grown up through the 90’s basically any old cartoon or movie that brings back the feels is a must have for us. Sammi is always on the hunt for a new Pokemon POP and I (Jamie) would love to add some more to my TMNT collection! From Star Wars to South Park to Moana (I mentioned the 2 ½ year old right?) we love Funko Pops.
When it comes to our favourite Pops, in the first picture of us you can see Sammi showing off her favorite Pop Spyro with Sparks (another awesome snag from K-Dog & Fish) and I (Jamie) wanted to showcase my Parks & Rec Ron with the Flu Funko Exclusive that I won from the K-Dog & Fish Thursday Giveaway! (another awesome thing these guys do!)
Since we are a little late to the game when it comes to collecting Funko Pops a lot of the POP’s we want are hard to find or Grails. Sammi would love to find a Sirius Black Prisoner of Azkaban Chase, and the new Jurassic Park Mr. DNA is a must have for her. I (Jamie) would love to find some of the retro TMNT Pops like Splinter, Shredder, and the rest of the gang from the retro cartoon and finding Randy Marsh, Chef and some of the older South Park Pops would be great too!
Ever since that glorious day we discovered K-Dog & Fish (and Funko POP’s) we were hooked, and these guys have everything to do with it! I never miss a 4’o clock Friday live show where we get to share some “ginger-ales” with the boys, play some games and talk Funko. The Virtual Garage Sales are SO much fun mainly because of how hilarious these two fellas are and with the YouTube shows and Podcasts I don’t know how these guys find the time to still answer any question you have, help you at the shop or make sure you’re in the know about all the new upcoming POP’s. Keep being Awesome guys, you really are one-of-a-kind.
Thank you Jamie and Sammi for sharing your story with us! Even though you guys are just getting started, your collection is awesome! Love all the TMNT, Marvel, DC and Pokemon, especially that wicked Star Lord Chase! We are so glad you found out about our Shop, YouTube and IG Live Shows! Congrats again on winning those prizes and joining us on our virtual garage sales! We appreciate you and want to say thanks again for being a part of our Funko community!
