Why some people invest in toys like Lego instead of stocks and commodities

Liverpool-based Rafal Skowron has spent $80,000 on his childhood dream toy - Lego

The collection's value has almost doubled to $158,000 over the past four years, based on the market prices of second-hand and discontinued Lego sets. It began in 2004 with the Star Wars Endor Base set as a present for his then five-year-old son, Oskar. But it was not until 2017 that buying Lego became a "serious addiction" for the father and son.
