A Brief History

We are simply passionate about toys! We are both grownups who love to have fun and we collect and enjoy many different kinds of toys. Some of our favorite themes include LEGO, Disney, Harry Potter, board games, video games, puzzles, and plush stuffed animals. We decided we needed a home on the web show we could share the joys of toys with friends around the world.

Who are we? Glad you asked! We are a mother and son team and we are so happy you have found us!


I’m Katie Nelson and I’m the webmaster here at Toy to the World. I’m a LEGO nut and I especially love the minifigures! I’ve always loved LEGOS but never had any while I was growing up because I somehow thought they were just for boys. I’m sure if I had asked my parents for some, they would have bought them for me. So I’ve been making it up to myself in my adult years! lol!

I also love watching Disney and Pixar movies, playing board games, putting together puzzles and LEGO sets, anything related to Harry Potter, the Minions from Despicable Me, and taking pictures of toys. Life’s too short to outgrow playing!


I’m Alex Nelson and I helped my Mom (Katie) dream up this website. We collaborate on a lot of ideas together and care about bringing clean and high quality fun to the internet community. 

I love video games, comics, trivia, Weird Al, LEGOS, Disney, Harry Potter, board games, puzzles, and music. I usually read at least one book every day and I also enjoy writing imaginative fiction for some of my favorite fandoms. You can find me on my own website at WiseOldAl.com and I help out around here as well.

I have high-functioning autism, but that hasn’t stopped me from leading a very full life. I earned my Eagle Scout award, graduated from high school with honors, and I’m currently working on my general studies for a college degree. Interestingly, I was actually afraid of many toys for several years when I was young. Now, I have discovered how much fun life can be with some good entertainment around.
