Do you or did you ever have any collections? I collected Yoda toys and elephant stuff. I also had a small Dragonball Z collection. My best friend and her husband collect He-Man things and she collects Tim Burton collectibles. What do you have?

Coin collecting is very popular. I used to love to collect pens too. I still like buying pens in fun colors and shapes.:)

When I was a kid I collected keychains. I have keychains from all over the place. whenever friends or family would travel they'd buy me that stuff. now people seem to buy me shot glasses and i have a small collection of shot glasses from different places. I like pigs also and I have a lot of piggy banks. I think they're my only collectibles. Sadly nothing worth any money these days.

Care Bears - The Care Bear Logo
Hi Flight84! My collection is Care Bears, Dragons, and Candles. My hubby collects Hot Wheels cars. Our daughter has Care Bears that I get doubles of and she also gets extra Hot Wheels if my hubby gets doubles too!

Ha ha. It works out for everyone.:) I used to have the Care Bear castle and the cloud car. I was a total Care Bear freak when I was little, and a few years ago my grandma started getting me Care Bears again. I have small collection now. I'm a sucker for 80s cartoon characters.:P

They certainly don't make their cartoon characters like they did in the 80's that's for sure! I absolutely adore the Care Bears and have since I was a kid! Now my daughter can adore them all she wants too lol.

I collected Dragonball Z stuff for awhile and now I'm really into Naruto. I really want this awesome Naruto bookends thing for my manga, but it's super expensive!

As a child I used to collect teddy bears, I always thought of it as rehoming unloved bears when I used to search charity shops for them, I was a sucker for a bear who needed a home, I had a whole bedroom full of them, and named all of them. Now I don't collect anything, I used to be a hoarder but after moving six times I find that hoarding is NOT the best policy!

I don't collect anything right now either. I always think I would like to have something to collect again, but I'm getting ready to move into my new house and I don't want to have all that clutter.

I collect many things, namely, 1 inch button pins, mighty beans toys, coins, stamps, banknotes, mr. potatohead toys, bookmarks, books, stuffed toys, unused greeting cards and stationery. I collect anything I can think of but once I reach a certain amount, I lose interest and shift to the next collection.

I used to have a stuffed animal collection until I got married and we didn't have room for my whole collection. I still have a few of them and the rest are still at my mom's house. What video games do you collect?

barn owl - picture of a barn owl
I have a couple of collections, I collect Owls and Koala's. I started collecting both when I was about 9, I got a stuffed Koala for my birthday, and I just started collecting owls that I found at flea markets and garage sales. My parents went a little crazy for a while, and bought every owl they saw, which was sweet, but I finally had to put some criteria to what I wanted. I've had to get rid of some over the years, because I ran out of room, so it's a smaller collection, but I still love it.

My sister-in-law used to be really into collecting frog stuff, but I think she got tired of them because people bought her frog stuff like crazy. I'm really into kangaroos though. I try to get a new one everytime I visit a zoo. My sister is getting into owls too.:)

I collect books and pottery. I am not one who keeps every book I get my hands on. I collect only the ones that have special meaning to me, or that I enjoy revisiting to read snipits from now and then. I enjoy shopping for first edition copies and old collectors item books. As for my pottery, I collect mostly bowls and jars. I like to know the artist of the pots I collect. I use most of my collection on a regular basis by rotating them through my house.

I like books too. I have some books that I have read so much the cover is worn off. I would like to take a class on making pottery. I've always thought that it looked like fun.

I used to collect flags of other countries. I don't know why I stoped, but I thought it was always neat to have a flag from another country. Each one has a story. Then I started collecting hurricane glasses from Hard rock cafes all over the world. People would bring them back for me. But that collection got to be to big and I have since run out of room to put them.

stamps  - I love to collect stamps and I have whole bunch of them.
Hello Flight. I have a whole bunch of collection of stamps in my stamp album. I love to collect stamps. I bought a lot of them and my friends also gave me many stamps, but this is my hobby in the past because now people seldom write letters but email each other instead. Out of this reason, I don't buy any more stamps. But I am glad to keep my old ones.
