Yang, as per reports, started to love Barbie when he accidentally opened his sister’s Christmas gift in 1984.

“I’ve been buying Barbie ever since. So I never started ‘collecting’. I just continued buying. I’ve never even seen myself as a collector,” he said.

He also emphasized social stigma for guys who collect dolls like him and said: “I think there will always be a social stigma for guys who collect dolls, and I’m very proud to say I probably don’t fit into any of those stereotypes.”
