A 33-year-old Kerala businesswoman, residing in Dubai for the past 28 years has been inducted into the Limca Book of Records for her collection of over 1,350 Disney toys.

According to IANS, Rizwana Ghori, a native of Thrissur has been living in Dubai with her parents, Razack Khan Ghori and Shahida Bhanu, and eight-year-old daughter, Daanya. She says that there is nothing that interests her more than her growing collection of Disney toys.

According to Rizwana’s mother, collecting plush Dinsey toys has always been more than just a hobby instilled in her by her father since she was a child. She now has a collection of over 1,350 Disney toys sourced from all over the world after 25 years of collecting.

All of Rizwana’s toys came from Disneylands, Disneyworld, parks, stores, and toy shops all over the world, she said.

“This is my life more than a hobby. It’s part and parcel of who I am. My father had inculcated this interest in me. I have a collection from across the globe and now have more than 1,350 Disney plush toys. I am the winner of the Limca book of records for the most number of Disney plush toys for an Indian,” Rizwana told IANS.

Many people have approached her and asked her to sell her collection, which she estimates to be worth more than Rs 3 crores in the market.

She claims to have turned down an offer of Rs 80 lakh for the collection from a well-known person.

Her collection is highlighted by an eye-catching life-size toy of the Lion King’s ‘Simba,’ a one-of-a-kind piece as only 40 were made in the world.

After hearing her mother’s Cinderella stories, Rizwana became enamoured with the Disney world. Her father used to buy toys for her during her school and adolescent years from his business trips to the UK and the UK.

The next goal for the ardent collector is to set a new Guinness World Record for toy collection.

“I don’t think there is anyone who has more than 1,350 Disney plush toys in their collection in the whole world and for that, I am applying to the Guinness… Let them verify and find out but I am confident that I will be having the maximum collection,” said Rizwana.
