Super Soaker Mt. Tiki-Soki Sprinkler

Dollar Flipper Blog Update, Ebay Flip, Ebay Research

Fair warning: This is a quickie post. My wife and I are in the midst of a move across states. My blog posts will be few and far between for the next month or so. I’d just ask that if you like my content, please stay subscribed. It might take a bit for me to get back into the swing of things, but I really enjoy writing here and sharing what I’ve learned!

In the mean time, I am still selling. Listing hasn’t been as good as I’d like it to be numbers-wise, but I just don’t have the time. Once I move, I’m going to have a specific eBay area in the back of the garage! Maybe I’ll even share the storage area!

Onto the recent sale:

Super Soaker Sprinkler – Mt. Tiki-Soki

Forgive the fact that I did this video in portrait. You live and learn.  I promise my next video will be in landscape and take full advantage of my phone’s camera capabilities!

Super Soaker water guns were originally made by a company called Larami. It’s a product of the early 90’s, near and dear to my heart.  It’s currently produced by Hasbro under the Nerf brand.

Now, old Super Soaker guns are really what you want to keep an eye out for. Check out some of these completed listings:

Cue the 20 and 30 somethings calling their parents to see if there’s still a Super Soaker in their garage…

The bigger, the better! Check out that badass one with the extra water container. I wish I could have gotten one of those!

Now, my Super Soaker item may not have been as cool as these big guns, but right about now (it’s going to be 90 tomorrow), it would be perfect.

Woah boy! I started this as an auction at $74.99, and it got up to $81.00. S/H was paid by the buyer at $9.90. Overall, this was a great sale experience. Fun learning while also hitting the nostalgia button!

Now, I PROMISE that my next post will be a How-To on embedding the YouTube video into an eBay listing. It’s super easy, and I plan on using videos to showcase any future items that have moving parts.
