Does your child collect anything?

My 3-year-old has a ton of those silly bands (not all the name brand). She was getting them from grandma and as favors at friends' birthday parties. So, she has a little collection. As she is only 3-years-old, I don't think she has reached her collecting things peek though. Does you child collect anything? Did you collect anything as a child? I didn't, but now when I watch shows, like Pawn Stars and Antiques Roadshow, I kinda wish I did!

  • Yes! One has a coin collection and a silly bands collection, another has a rock collection and a box collection, and a third has a Squinkie collection. As a kid I collected bottles and boxes.

  • My almost 8 yr old son collects hot wheels and bouncy balls, my almost 7 yr old son collects his own drawings (sooo much paper), and it seems like my almost 5 yr old daughter collects polly pockets...she has a million of those things!

  • My 4 year old son has a fossil collection. Also, although I don't think this would count as an actual "collection", he has a natural talent for growing orchids and has several in his room.

  • My son collects coins. My daughter collects trolls and peace signs. When I was a kid I collected Barbie dolls. Which I still had them.

  • I collected music boxes, which my mother sold when I went to college. My kids collect stockings, we only put them all up at Christmas. My MIL also buys my DD Christmas snow globes, which only come out at Christmas.
