Do your kids collect anything?

Do you or your dh have a collection of something?

Did you collect anything as a child? Do you still have it?

None of my kids really do, although my 9 year old collects anything military or airsoft.

The hubby collects guns, knives and camping/hunting/fishing stuff...the stuff needs it's own house.

I don't collect anything except maybe small appliances, I have a thing for them.

My kids collect rocks They're always bringing them in the house.

I used to collect cow and pig salt and pepper shakers, but they're all in a box, I don't have them out but I can't part with them either.

As for the dc, does dirt/sand count? They (esp. the boys) seem to like to collect that.

My oldest (5) Alex, he collects money lol. Maybe because I'm a banker and I stress saving and putting money in their savings so much?

My daughter (3) is not collecting anything yet..and also my 1yo is too young too. But my son is obsessed with his money collection.

As far as me collecting anything..maybe books. But only to read once and then put away...I don't collect them for the mere purpose of collecting them, only for reading them.

Alyssa is the only one that has ever collected stuff. She used to collect rocks when she was around 4-5 yrs old. (I'm glad that's over!) Now she is into Mario and Sonic stuff.

Dh grew up collecting baseball cards. He still has all of them.

As a kid I collected stamps. I'm not sure what ever happened to them. I also collected Troy Aikman memorabilia. I even had a whole stash of Troy Aikman pogs. Remember, those? When I was pregnant with Alyssa I started collecting beanie babies. I think I have over 200+ stashed away at my moms.
I guess you could say I collect ribbon now. I'm always buying ribbon for hair bows. I have more than I know what to do with.
