How and when did you start collecting?

I’ve been collecting since I was a kid, I’ve always loved toys and Happy Meals were an easy collection addiction. My dad is also a collector, so some may say it’s in my genes.

What do you collect? Does your collection have a theme, such as Star Wars, Batman, etc.?

I collect mostly figurines and sometimes plushies.  There’s no specific theme as I’ll collect items from whatever brands I love, so when you walk into my apartment you’ll see a burst of different colors and themes.

What makes your collection unique?

Since I collect different brands it’s a lot of fun for people when they come over to look at everything I have. I also have pieces from Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Not to mention the collection doesn’t stop in the living room, it’s all over my apartment.  I also curate what’s in my rotating display case.  So there is more of a theme in there, sometimes it’s Happy Meal toys from a collection, sometimes it’s amiibos from a certain game, I love switching it up.  I think curating a certain part of your collection is a great way to save space and keep things fresh!

What are your favorite or the most prized pieces in your collection?

I would say it’s my Hot Toys collectable: Molly Harley Quinn Disguise Playground Version.  I went all the way to Hong Kong to snag her. I’ve recently also gotten the Bat Girl edition and the two of them are SO CUTE.

What items are on your wishlist?

My wish list is a mile long and always changing.  Off the top of my head here’s some:

  • Sailor Mars Pullip Doll
  • Anything Sanrio related, specifically looking to grown my Aggretsuko items as I only have one Funko
  • Studio Ghibli items
