Another year of toys

A year ago today, I started this blog as a way to keep track of all toys I would buy over the following year. A year and 150 toys later, here we are, ready for another year of toys. I wasn't expecting to get many readers outside of people I already know, but now I have 41 followers. I'm kind of blown away by that, so thanks to all of you that have been reading! Another pleasant surprise has been that I've got people reading my blog from as far away as Singapore, and as local as my own state. Because of this blog, I've even had a visit from Spock!

I'm not at all surprised that Star Wars toys made up the hugest chunk of all the toys I got last year. It was kind of a surprise that G.I. Joe took second place, but it was a good year for Joe fans, with the classic Joes and the movie Joes in stores. And rounding out third was Marvel comic characters, followed by DC comic characters, and then in fifth were Transformers. If you had asked me at the beginning of the year, I would have predicted Transformers would be higher, but I suppose it's a line that's more about bigger toys rather than quantity.

Here's looking forward to the coming year of toys, I hope you all have a good one!
