What Funko lines do you collect? How many pieces are in your collection?
Our favorite Funko items to collect are Pop!s. However, we collect and love several other items too such as Mystery Minis, plushies, Vynl., Dorbz and Hikari. Basically, everything Funko! We even recently started to collect Wacky Wobblers. All together I would say we have approximately 1200 pieces.

We have been collecting for a little over 4 years now..
What are your favorite fandoms?
Just a few of our favorite fandoms are Avengers, It, Star Wars and Freddy Funko.

Tell us your favorite Funko story!
Our Funko journey all started by our oldest son winning one of his first Funko Pop!s at an arcade in Ocean City, MD. Ever since then our family has been hooked. My wife and myself even use Funko to reward our kiddos for getting straight A's in school and just all around good behavior and making good choices. Funko items, especially Pop!s, were something our children liked to check out at every store, so we used this to our advantage. Our children look forward to receiving their special treat at the end of the week. Sometimes it's a Pop! or perhaps a Funko shirt, but I can assure you it's always Funko related. Funko has become a great way we have come together supporting each other and bonding as a family. What better way to spend time with my boys than Pop! hunting, going to local Funko meet ups and the ultimate dream maybe even one day going as a family to Fundays and the Funko HQ! I guess you can say we are truly a "FUN"ko Family!!
