First Jobs of NBC 5 Today: Larry Collins at the Toy Store

Summer jobs are a rite of passage for teenagers around North Texas – making memories that will last a lifetime.

All week long, the NBC 5 Today crew has gone back to their roots; revisiting their first jobs.

Reporter Larry Collins’ first job was at a toy store in his hometown in Louisiana and said it was an unforgettable experience.

"The best part of the entire job was that we were required to play with all the toys," Collins said. "What better way to get all the kids excited?"

He spent the morning with the workers at Dallas’ oldest family-owned toy store, Toys Unique seeing if he still had what it takes.

"It’s a mix of job, playing with kids, babysitting," Toys Unique employee Jeremy Kasper said.
