Welcome to COOLTOYS.tv! Home of the Coolest Toy show on the web. All of the toys that you would need to hide in a warehouse so your wife doesn’t kick you out. We find em, test em, buy em if we have too.
If you think you have a CoolToy, let us know about it so we can check it out and put it on the show.
In the home audio ABUS and Echo Dot review and test we discovered that the first generation Echo Dot would “clip”. It initially sounded like digital skipping, a result of low bandwidth or bad wifi, but it was something else.
The Crew is out for Spring Break and Scott takes the Volt on the road.
On October 26th 2008, CoolToys.tv had it’s humble beginnings as a free blog on WordPress.com You can still see it, KuhlToys.wordpress.com. The mission was an extension of our hosts, former home technology business. Our Host, Scott Bourquin, has a problem with toys, apparently he just won’t grow up.
As the blog grew in scope Scott tried the idea of a video addition to the blog, Tech-Tach-Dough. A show about technology, fast toys (tach as in tachometer), and money. The first episode was about adding LED Halo Headlights to a Jeep JK.
Here is a slightly updated version of that first video.
The first demo video hit 50,000 views the first week without any advertising or marketing work. By the end of the month it broke 100,000 views and the company that made the headlights sent us better headlights.
After making two more videos, it was quickly determined that no one was ready to hear Scott pontificate about money and the “dough” was dropped. Those episodes were shelved quickly. The new series would only be about Tech and Tach, basically big boy toys.
After a little market testing of CoolToys and KuhlToys we found that our original blog brought some weight with it so we created KuhlToys.com and filed for the trademark. In doing so we were opposed by a not so cool company that thought they owned the word Kuhl, and therefore KuhlToys was theirs, not ours.
When the first blog started in 2009 they were a little company like ours and we had never heard of them. The legal battle continues, buy our swag, support our cause.
As a precautionary measure, we did the research and spent the money to insure the CoolToys was in fact available as a trademark on a commercial level and when it was found to be available, we filed for that Trademark as a backup.
So for now we are running our show as both KuhlToys and CoolToys until the courts tell us what our limits are. For now you can only buy our swag with CoolToys and CoolToys.TV on it. We are hoping to get KuhlToys Swag back out soon.
Thank you for watching our show and your support!
