What started out as a personal hobby turned into a museum full of toys.

The three-storey Yexel's Toy Museum in Las Piñas City displays thousands of small to life-size action figures. It even has an 18-foot tall mechanical bust of the leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime, of the television cartoon "Transformers."

Owner Yexel Sebastian said he spent around P20 million to collect the toys and convert his home into a museum. "'Pag toys kasi lagi kang young at heart eh. Dala ko 'yun hanggang sa pagtanda, andoon ang happiness ko," he said.

Located at No. 52 Sampaguita Road, Pilar Village in Las Piñas City, Yexel's Toy Museum is open every weekend from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
