Story
Tagline
Owner of Tenacious Toys™
Introduction
I'm Benny, co-owner of Tenacious Toys™.

My wife and I started this online toy shop in 2004/2005. We discovered an 8" Tim Biskup Qee in FAO Schwartz and we were captivated. We started poking around on the internet to find out more about vinyl art toys. We bought a case of green Eggsters from SKET, used the receipts from a few purchases like that to put together some credentials to weasel our way into Toy Fair, and never looked back. We started selling vinyl toys on eBay but eventually outgrew that and started a real ecommerce website with absolutely zero prior knowledge of web design.

We live in NYC with a bunch of pit bulls and other assorted creatures.
Bragging rights
I managed to create a website from scratch which people actually like. I screwed literally everything up along the way, but I learned a lot about the internet while I did it.
