Like most children, my first toy was a plush. A Curious George to be exact. Growing up I had all sorts of action figures from He-Man to Star Wars and everything in between. I currently collect way too many things to list. As far as experience, I have been working in the industry since 1996. I have worked all over from replica prop shops to McFarlane Toys, SOTA Toys, Mezco Toys, Gentle Giant Studios, and many others in between. Most of my professional career has been with action figures and collectibles which is why, with October Toys, I really wanted to get into the vinyl/art side of things.

A lifelong Lego maniac and plush aficionado, Ayleen’s toy addiction started with classic 80s toy lines like He-Man, The Real Ghostbusters, G.I. Joe, TMNT, Cabbage Patch Kids, and My Little Pony. Her obsession grew to include Monster In My Pocket, McFarlane action figures, and a plethora of designer vinyl. When not making toys, Ayleen hosts/produces the weekly toy show Toy Break, coordinates the annual toy/art show Designer Con, and visits Disneyland frequently. She also has a strange affection for maps, a fascination with dragons, and an unyielding love of Ewoks.

October Toys & The Environment
We here at October Toys are committed to helping the environment as much as possible. We start by re-using shipping and packaging materials as often as we can. When we aren’t re-using packaging, we use re-useable, biodegradable Kraft paper or biodegradable loose fill which is made from natural vegetable starch (we even tried eating it to make sure…tastes like popcorn). Materials and supplies are ordered locally whenever possible in order to help reduce our carbon footprint and we are constantly working to reduce the amount of packaging our products come in. Finally, we donate a percentage of every sale to Global Green to help work toward a sustainable and secure future…filled with toys.
