What did you collect as a child? Do you still have the collection? If not, what do you collect now?

My brother and I both collected baseball cards.  I couldn't tell you how many we had!  We had so much fun with them.  I also collected Barbies.  I have neither of those collections and now I collect anything that has to do with birds and/or birdwatching.

 How funny, I collected baseball cards as well.....I had tons of them. I also collected barbies :) I have neither of them now. Once I had 2 boys my barbie collection was sold on eBay and I have no idea what happened to the baseball cards. I don't collect anything now, as I despise clutter lol

I collected keychains.  I have the collection still.  It was a great "cheap" item my parents would buy for any vacation or business trip destination.

When I was young I collected mini spoons. I wanted to have one from each state, it never happened. I don't have them anymore. I moved so much when I was younger they all got lost over time.

Now I collect apple stuff for my kitchen, Native American art/pottery and books.

 I collected anything with Smurfs when I was little- they got lost in the move when I moved into my first house. I collect Disney snow globes now and have started collecting the small ones for my daughter.

This is going to sound strange but I collected shot glasses.  I don't have them anymore.  I also collected dolls - this was my mom's thing really so I was not sad to part with the dolls.  

I collect nothing now.  Although my mother-in-law is trying to start me on Christmas ornaments that are just for show.  They are really pretty but I don't know if I like it yet.

I used to collect all kinds of crazy things.  I didn't have much clear wall space in my room.  lol!  I had TONS of NKOTB posters (Yep, me  They were even on my ceiling.  I used to have those flags that you get from tourist places.  And I also put together jigsaw puzzles, glued them together, and put those on my walls, too.  When I finally moved out and had to paint my room...that was not fun getting rid of all the pin marks and tape. 

Now I can't say I collect anything.  I have a few angel and turtle figurines (two of my favorite things) but I can't really say it's a collection.
