About The Toy Box Philosopher

I've been blogging about dolls for almost ten years now.  My primary blog, the Toy Box Philosopher (toyboxphilosopher.com), has over 400 reviews covering a wide range of dolls.  I enjoy giving readers an up-close look at trendy dolls and new releases, but I also relish the occasional deep-dive into the details of discontinued or vintage items.  Toys with a surprise element are a quirky obsession of mine, and so I like to highlight surprise-themed dolls on a regular basis.

For financial reasons, TBP has been on hiatus for the last few years, but I've continued to write about dolls over on my secondary blog, The My Twinn Project Shop.  On that site, I showcase the My Twinn and My Way Kid dolls that I restore and sell.

I've gotten back to work reviewing dolls on Toy Box Philosopher, and could not be happier about it!  My hope is that Patreon will make the blog more sustainable, without me having to flood the site with ads or sell out to a sponsor. I'm also excited about new opportunities to connect and engage with other doll lovers here on this platform.

For all of you who told me to start a Patreon page years ago when I was freaking out about money: sorry! I'm a slow learner.  For everyone who's here to chip in for the future of TBP, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I will try not to disappoint.
