Do You Collect Anything Else?    posted on Jan 4th, 2007, 5:15am
 
Just wondered if anyone collected anything else but ducks Smiley
 
I collect vintage Littlest Pet Shop figures, mostly because they where some of my favorite toys growing up, I have some of the new ones, but I still prefer the ones I grew up with.
 
So, what about you?

I actually did not know that the Littlest Pet Shop was a re-make... but I guess Polly Pocket is, so that makes sense.. on that vein, my sister loved Polly Pockets when she was little and thinks the new ones are a travesty as they are not at all like the original!
 
I also collect Gnomes!

The old ones look nothing like the new ones.
 
http://littlestpetshop.50webs.com/, thats a really good list of all the old ones
 
I prefered the old Pollys too, it made more sense because you could really pack up her, her friends, her dog and her house and put it in your pocket

I collect Jellycat toys, but a specific range called furcoat  Smiley
 


 
I like them as they are a bit different from the normal cuddly toys!!!

I collect rocks from different places that my family, friends, or myself travel to. They go in my garden. Shot glasses, but only from places that I have gone, that is an important stipulation.I also collect c.d.s and books, but i'm not sure that would count in this thread. In my younger days, I collected ceramic bird figurines, Breyer horse models (which I still have somewhere, packed safely away) and clocks. The clocks did not last long, as a few of them chimed and cuckoo'ed and kept the house on edge!

I was recently introduced to these collectable vinyl toys designed by artists from backgrounds of graffiti, fine art, industrial design, graphic design, illustration and music.  They originated in Hong Kong and Japan and are called "Dunnys." Anyway, I bought one the other day and it is so cool that I would like to go get a few more.  Here's what the Dunny looks like:

Hey digicolleen!  
I once wrote a little bit about urban designer vinyl on Duckplanet a year or two ago. If you're interested in learning more, a friend of mine has a really great weblog devoted to them called Vinyl Pulse! http://www.vinylpulse.com/

Thanks Charlotte!! What a cool weblog--I bookmarked it. Those toys are so creative--very artistic and edgy. I love that.

Wow, digicolleen, we've got a lot of those toys here in Hong Kong too! Most are inexpensive except for the limited editions! If you ever need them, I can get them for you here as well! I used to want to collect those but my mom put her foot down. I don;t know, she doesn;t like vinyl things but lately she doesn;t seem to hate my rubber ducks as much as before... Tongue
 
I also collect: PENS!! (all kinds, from those made by Sanrio to those "funky" ones); prints (i.e. art works by others); (handmade) journals (but I write in them at the same time); and anything that has to do with elephants and tigers.

Besides ducks, I also collect Rubik's Cube's. I own 6 as of now (recently purchased the Rubik's Revenge). I plan on buying Professor Rubik's (5x5) after I figure out how to solve the 4x4. I like new challenges. Tongue
 
I also collect Snoopy items. I have a bobblehead, stickers, Pez Dispenser, tons of Snoopy collectables and so on.

Pens. Funky, novelty pens. The only thing that rivals my ducky collection.

Do you have this one?
 
I can't find it in any local stores so I'm going to order it online. I thought of you when I saw it.
