I collect Barbies anything before 1999 because they changed Barbie's face a few years back and she looks kind of angry now.
I also collect Action Figures and toys related to TV shows
I collect anything with the number 44 on it (long story)
I collect DVDs
I don't collect CDs but I have a TON!  ;D

and as you all know I collect Autographs from, 8x10 of,  and pics of me with my fav celebs.

I collect 45s and 12" Singles.  I used to collect cassette tapes, but when you amass over 3,000 of them, you tend to run out of space to store them all LOL

I collect TV on DVD.  Lately, it doesn't really matter what show it is; If it came out in the 80s, I'll probably get it lol

I'm with you. I hope, to make about $100 on my garage sale next week so that I can buy a larger DVD stand for my TV DVDs.

I don't do much collecting anymore. When I was a teenager I collected baseball cards,they were ruined after the apartment we lived in had a leak in the roof,and it leaked down into the metal file cabinet. I tried to collect porecelin clowns,but nobody would buy any for me,so my collection ended at 4. At one time I had bought missy(yes and me) over 50 of those little Kelly dolls

Angry???? Heck my 2 daughters have at least a dozen Barbies and most look like ho's!!!!  They have had a nose job, it is more upturned and pointy than ever before, they have silicon injected in their lips, their mouths are huge, terrible makeup, and they must use botox (because yes their forehead/eyebrows are at that weird angle that does not match the smile or lip purse ).......  They completely freak me out........... and don't get me started on those Bratz

And I believe there was another thread that was on the old board so it is only available in the archives.

That's ok. It has been a while.


Ok, here is my list (even though you can look at any one of those old threads to find it  :D ;D ;D ).


Money.  ;D ;D ;D  More specifically coins-which I'm sure is a surprise to people around here.  ;) :D :D ;D ;D ;D
Cat figurines-but haven't been actively been collecting for years because I ran out of room to display them and many are still in boxes.
Tee shirts
Match books-again I haven't been actively collecting in a while.


I could make a joke about collecting dust.  :D ;D ;D




and Happy Meal Toys




You should meet one of my sisters. I think she probably has every single Happy Meal Toy that has ever been made-and duplicates of many, too. I don't think she even knows how many she has.

And thanks Snoz for suggesting me!

Back on topic:

I collect three major things I can think of off the top of my head:

Michael Jackson memorobilia. I have dolls, shirts, posters, dvds, etc. It's pretty excessive and I'm always looking for more. (Oh, Howard!... ;) )
Prince memorobilia. Vinyle, posters, cds... :( kind of excessive too. Can't really say "no" to Prince.
Jimmy Stewart movies. I have about 10 of his movies and am always hanging around the classic movie stations poised to tape another one and buying copies from the movie store. LOL.

That's about it.  ;D

I like to collect mostly TV shows on DVD, CD's, and vinyl records. I also used to collect issues of Seventeen magazine, mostly from 1977-1982, with a few issues from 1983-1989.  :)

Written By: Andria on 11/08/08 at 11:07 pm

I collect all kinds of things, such as pocket calculators, Wurlitzer, Hammond and other electric organs, console stereos, vinyl records (specifically, novelty songs, comedy recordings and K-tel, Ronco, Columbia House and other brands of mixed rock, pop and country LPs from the 1960s to the mid-1980s), old license plates, ash trays,"Wise Guys" figurines (those little off-white vinyl ones that say things like "World's Best Golfer" and are sarcastic or humorous in nature, with the example that I mentioned bending his golf club over one knee), garden statuary,  antique or interesting golf balls, humorous books (Dave Barry, Art Linkletter, Patrick McManus, Erma Bombeck, collections of strange news stories and/or stupid crimes and The Darwin Awards are my favorites), political memorabilia and anything related to DuPont Corporation and Schlitz Brewing. (My father is an exterminator who enjoys painting cars, fences and buildings, reloading spent ammunition cartridges, is a Jeff Gordon fan and drinks a lot of beer, so one can easily see why I like DuPont and Schlitz.) BTW, I have two storage units full of console stereos, organs (the musical instrument, not the body part), books, political lawn signs, lawn gnomes and records. :)

Did you know that Barbie was created in 1959 but they didn't make the first black Barbie until 1980?

Yes they had Barbie's black friend Christie in the 60s but the black version of Barbie herself took 21 years to create.

Hispanic Barbie came way later than that.
