Christian has been collecting vinyl collectible toys since 2003, amassing over 800 individual pieces that are all beautifully displayed throughout his Manila home. As someone who was once bitten by the vinyl collectibles bug ourselves (we ran out of room, so I stopped), this collection is like a dream realized. What's most striking besides the sheer amount of Christian's vinyl collectibles is how tastefully they're all displayed throughout several sections of his home. Christian was kind enough to send us some photos and give us some insight about how he keeps his display looking tip-top...
On keeping his collection
First of all your collection must be clean so we use Swiffer to clean out the toys once a week. I always play with my display once in a while. I have designated places in the house where the toys should are displayed to avoid clutter. I also match the toys with the room color and the furnitures. Customized display cases makes toys more beautiful and organized. That's about it :)
