Growing up in the 1980’s and 1990’s, Dan enjoyed a variety of popular toys including He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters, ThunderCats, Voltron, and many more. His love of toys has followed him into his adult life where he continues to collect toys both new and old. Through his popular videos on his YouTube channel, with over 100,000 subscribers, Dan shares his enthusiasm for the collecting hobby with the world.

Dan is well-known for his charismatic video reviews and has been featured on prominent toy and video game sites such as He-Man.org, RetrowareTV.com, and Toy News International. His videos include many styles such as individual action figure or toy reviews to industry news coverage and interviews with representatives from major toy companies shot on location at various events across the country.

In addition to his videos, Dan also writes articles about many topics relating to toys and the collecting hobby. He has been published on sites such as StarWars.com, where he is a regular contributor.

Dan is a believer that toys are all about fun and he aims to keep his videos exciting, informative, and most importantly fun for all.

Christina often times is the one manning the camera, both in the studio and on location at events such as San Diego Comic Con. Christina also works as a photographer to help cover toy news at various events, and even appears on camera from time to time. Most notably, she appears in the regular series Blind Bag Mini Figure Madness and the popular Advent Calendar Madness each holiday season!
