This Mom Has An Impressive Tiny Toys Collection: 'Playing Together Bonds Us More As A Family'She has Re-Ment sets, miniature collectibles, and Pokemons that she shares with her son.by Cielo Anne Calzado .
Can you still recall the items you’ve collected when you were younger? From songhits and vintage toys, to old comics and other memorabilia—we’ve all collected items that bring us happiness and kept a few—not just to remind us of the olden days, but also to have something we can pass on to our children.
Mom of one Abby Bautista Soriano knows a thing or two about the joy of collecting. Her Facebook page, aptly called Tiny Toys Diaries, gives a glimpse of how vast her toy collection is as scrolling through it is like taking a trip down memory lane.
“I started collecting tiny or miniature toys back then but my favorite is the Polly Pocket compacts and houses by Bluebird,” she shares in an interview with Smartparenting.com.ph.
Abby has always been fascinated by miniature dollhouses and anything tiny since she was a kid. While she stopped collecting for some time, she started adding to her collection again after she got married because her husband, Raff, is also a toy collector.
“He loves vintage Japanese robots like Super Sentai, Super Robots, and other robots like Transformers and Medabots. Toy collecting is one of our shared hobbies,” Abby says.
Turns out husband and wife aren’t the only ones who love collecting toys as their six-year-old son, Bryce, also has a collection of his own and loves playing with his parents’ vintage collectibles.
“He was trained at a young age so he knows how to hold valuable toys properly. We let him hold and play with our collections, too. Given the money we spent on these and their current value, it can be considered as our pamana to Bryce. Of course, if the time comes and he does not want any of these, we are okay if he wants to sell them,” reveals Abby.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
For Abby and her family, toys aren’t just things—they are stress-relievers, making them feel happy and young again. “Playing with our collections together bond us more as a family,” she adds.
Aside from using it as a bonding activity, the family also started a Youtube channel called Tara! Laro Tayo! where they showcase their collections, give tips to fellow collectors, and basically just share the good vibes. There’s even a playlist featuring Bryce and his toys so expect a dose of cuteness, too!

“I have one cabinet for my vintage Polly Pockets while the Re-Ment sets and other miniatures are kept in plastic organizers in another cabinet,” she says.
Since they live in a condo, proper organization is key. Some of the toys are kept on shelves while Bryce’s toys are stored in big bins he can easily access. Meanwhile, Raff’s robots are placed on display shelves and cabinets.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
