The story is around the year 1998-1999, Aldo and his colleagues took the initiative to open a garage sale who specializes selling toys of their collections. From there, many fans of toys who are interested in Aldo’s toys. Thus was born the Zerotoys. Yep, called Zerotoys due at the time there were no toy stores at all, then Zerotoys became the toy store, which first appeared, not with the number one who is identical to the first, but with a zero who means before the first or the very first!

Over time, more and more people who barter and deposit toys in Zerotoys for sale, but because that too, especially old school toys of the 80s began to run out and rarely to find. So Aldo took the initiative to separate the old school toys, from there so was the birth of toy museum of the 80s. Yep, the museum which is located side by side with Zerotoys is a museum which showcased all the toys of the 80s. Starting from He-Man, Star Wars, Silver Hawk, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Voltus, until the japanese candy toys who was first circulated showcased here.

From Japan toys until American toys begin to shown here, don’t forget, several artwork, posters and other trinkets who come with toys of the 80s too showed in the museum who is located precisely on the Sunda street No. 39A.

Why should the 80s? Because the 80s was the golden age of cartoons and children's toys, for examples, circulated films in the 2000s such as Transformers and GI Joe is a remake of the product the 80s. Star Wars, Silver Hawk until action figure toys sized three inches also first appeared in the 80s says Aldo. Therefore it’s not strange if who comes to Zerotoys is average adult male who aged 30's, although not a few young people who come here also.

Because the toys displayed in the museum is almost entirely well maintained, the value is high. For example Voltus toys who is still complete with its box, price is estimated to be about 8-10 million! Well, no doubt, Zerotoys is heaven for you the collector of toys especially the toys of 80s. Therefore, Zerotoys practically is a time machine who will deliver you to the golden era of Voltus cs.
