What did you collect as a child?
I collected badges, my brother postcards but we had a lot of stickers and tazzos too.
I had badges and stamps, but I also collected marbles I had all kind in all colors, wonder what happened to them!
cars, rocks, PokeMon cards, shells, and then YuGiOh cards.
i collected stamps and badges. Recently i took all my old badges to a car boot sale and sold quite a few of them - well I had hung on to them for over 30 years! Next is to find out how much my stamps are worth!
Matchbox cars was my main collection. I still have hundreds of them somewhere in the attic. I also collected football stickers. Happy days.
stamps, first day cover, badges, tiles, story books, music books, coins and notes.
Those days were great! I used to collect marbles, coins, story books, pencils, rocks, pictures of famous leaders from the newspapers and peacock's feather. Sweet childhood memories!
My grand parenst decided I would collect cats beacuse all my cousins collected bears horses etc. They figured I liked animals so Id like figuienes etc. I would of preffered the real things though it took until I was 17 to get them to understand I didnt want cat stuff. Many other people where thrilled with my kitty items when I got rid of it.
Funny - I had forgotten about marbles. We had a good tin full of them.
About the stickers, when you got bought a pack, did you do an automatic flick-through to see if you'd got any "silvers". Ha, we did. That was the best moment of the day.
