Who am I?
I’m a 35 year old writer and collector named Dan Polydoris. I’ve written for fun projects like You Don’t Know Jack, and my custom toys have been seen on Nerdist, Game Informer, and more. I'm also obsessed with vintage toys, 80's nostalgia and all things retro.  

What is this?
This toy blog (formerly Chicago Toy Collector) began in 2010 as a place for me to write about collecting vintage toys, showcase custom action figures, post toy news, and do other extremely important things.

When did I start collecting?
I never really “started” collecting toys. I just never stopped buying them. 

Where do I live?
I live in a small city called Chicago that’s located about 10 minutes outside of Morton Grove, IL.

Why am I writing this like an interview when it's really just me talking to myself?
I don't even know what I'm doing anymore.
