I thought I was one of a very few people that collect elephants. Its nice to know that there is someone else that does it too. I have tons of them. I have many stuffed animal elephants and many different kinds of figurines. I also have posters,plaques, earrings,necklaces and pins with elephants on them. Heck, I even have a pair of socks with elephants. But one of the most strangest things I have is something that hooks up to your shower and the water comes out the trunk. It is adorable.

As soon as my daughter-in-law brings my camera back, I'll get a picture of it. I also have an elephant that makes peanuts into peanut butter. It kind of reminds me of those snowcone machines the kids used to have. I can't believe I forgot about that one.

I used to collect glass animal figurines but they were just things, now I collect houseplants as a hobby which has turned into a passion.

I like to collect Hello Kitty, Strawberry Shortcake and movies. I have several by different actors and then genres. Espicially creature features and horror. Also I collect the books by the authors that I like to read. That is basically what I look for at flea markets, Ebay and church rummage sales.

I like to collect cookbooks, the older the better, crystal bowls (the real stuff, and because of that I have very few) and mink coats, I know that sounds odd, but I have always been a fur lover, in fact, I sold furs on eBay for about 2 years and now I just continue to buy and collect them, perhaps I will give them to my daughter when I am gone so she can remember me.

I collect turtles, cookbooks and small kitchen appliances. I have turtles everywhere in my house. Glass, plastic, ruby, blown glass, and stuffed. My cats think the stuffed ones are theirs. Laying with them and carrying them around in their mouths. I collect cookbooks of all kinds. My favorite though is the community cookbooks where there is a bit of everything in it. My small kitchen appliances. Hmmm. Waffle maker, blender, food saver, GT 101 Express and my favorite my pizzelle maker (Italian cookie Press) . There are so many others. Too numerous to list.

I like to collect angels. I have a good collection going. Guardian angels, rainbow angels, african american baby angels. I like other things but collecting angels is at the top. I have a friend who has an elephant collection. Last gift I gave her was an elephant figurine.

yes people keep on collecting one thing or the other during their life time and it kind of becomes the best pass-timer for them. Ur collection of wooden elephants is sounding kindof unique to me. I too like collecting things and my latest article id "digit magazines"

Clackers - Clacker Toys. My sister had a huge collection of these when she was young.
About the only thing I collect is Lush products LOL. I have a nice little stash going. My sister used to collect Pigs. She thought they were brilliant! She even persuaded Mom and Dad to buy a little ceramic one for the light cord in the bathroom. We shared a bedroom at the time and the window ledge was full of little pig figurines, she even had a pig soap that smelled awesome. Of course, it was just for show. We weren't allowed to use it. She also used to collect those Clacker toy things. I lost count of the number of times she drove us barmy with those things lol. Every time when she had those out we knew where she was, because the noise of them was never far behind. I think by the time she'd done and lost interest in them she had a collection of close to 20 different ones - not bad for an 11 year old girl.
