Car salesman Peter Drakos, 64, has won somewhere in the region of a quarter of a million stuffed toys at carnival games, and has donated them all to charity.
Drakos, a car salesman from Detroit, Michigan, began playing carnival games at the age of nine, and during his first year he won enough stuffed toys to give one to each kid in his school, more than two hundred.
Since then, he has become such a sure shot at these games of skill, refining his techniques using physics and geometry practices, that he has forced a cap in many places on the number of prizes people can win at carnivals.

“I don’t want to say it is all because of me, but it is all because of me,” Drakos told US network CBS as Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio introduced a limit on how many prizes one person can win.
