I've been a regular Amazon shopper for quite a few years now but the only people I ever see in the discussions are parents shopping for their kids. So I got to thinking, are there any other collectors here?

I'm 26 F and I've been collecting for most of my life (Jurassic Park, TMNT, Video game figures, Pokemon, digimon, robotic pets, Yu-gi-oh, Littlest pet shop, Anime figures, plushies, much more) and would like to have other collectors to talk to about all things toys! So, post and check in! I'll keep this updated.

Isn't that the whole reason adults have kids, so they can buy stuff 'for the kids' when it's really for them?

I'm 30..I collect Legos. I love them since I was a kid. Those huge sets are quite expensive so I could only afford them during my adulthood. They are quite big so I will be running out of room soon.

Janus Zeal, do you have an account on twistypuzzles.com? I am a fellow puzzle collector, an amateur puzzle builder, and I actually know most of the puzzles you listed. My collection includes: Floppy Cube, Void Cube, Holey Megaminx, Gold, Silver, and Bronze Fisher Golden Cubes, 3 Rainbow cubes, set of morpheggs, set of Fisher Eggs, Rubik's Brand 3*3*3, 4*4*4, and 5*5*5, among others.

In addition to my puzzle collection, I also have a small collection of Geomag, and a collection of Ojamajo Doremi merchandise to make many a young girl envious.

I am proud to say that I am a 22 year-old who still has a strong attachment to his childhood.

Yeah, I'm a 26 year old guy who collects. The walls in my hallway are covered with Transformers, while the living room has TV, Movie, and Game figures. I tried to keep them out of the bedroom, but they've started to creep in there too.

No, sorry. I don't have an account on twistypuzzles.com
Almost all my puzzles were purchased on eBay.
It is good to know other places where to buy puzzles :D, thank you for the information.
I have also Geomag, I have the pocket set that includes 36 metallic blue magnetic rods and 24 chrome spheres, and the big box with 270 metallic blue magnetic rods and 130 chrome spheres. Also, a box of each king of panel for the Geomag.
