History

In 1998, Scott switched gears and entered the home technology business. He was all about the “Cool Toys” for the house. He also ski’s, races cars, flies jets and surfs.  His friends always called him to find out more about the next “cool toy”.

In 2008 Scott wanted to start a website about Cool Toys.  The blog wasn’t much of a start but a start it was.

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. The name he tried for the first video series was 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 boys toys. The name was changed to CoolToys and CoolToys.TV was launched.

Thank you for watching our show and your support!
