Darin is the one who started this entire business, and today is his BIRTHDAY!
Darin is our President & Marketing and IT specialist: he does all of the website programming, internal software development and upgrades, all of our print advertising, and Google/web advertising. If it weren't for him, there would be no 3000toys!
Darin was raised on a farm in SW Missouri. He has a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting and a Masters in Business Administration with an emphasis in Computer Analysis. He actually wrote his Masters paper on marketing on the internet back in 1990! In March of 1995, he took one of his childhood toy tractors to a local toy show in Kansas City, MO and was amazed by how many people were at that show. He had no idea that there was so much out there for the collector! By August of 1995, he launched this business with 12 products - keep in mind, there was no Ebay or Amazon yet! The business has continued to grow incredibly, and 3000toys now actually has well over 10,000 items. As always, Darin continues to give God the credit for the continued growth.
