3 weeks in to it now, not long to go. Day 21: what have you collected?
I don’t think I really collected that much when I was a child. I remember, when I was 6/7, collecting the Angelina Ballerina magazines. I loved Angelina Ballerina, I watched the show and had the toys. The first magazine came with a teddy of Angelina and her friend (I think her name was Alice?). Every week after that there was an item of clothing to dress them in. I adored it.
I also collected Doctor Who cards. I had thousands of them, still do. I couldn’t get rid of them. They came in packs of 6 or so and they sold them in our local shop. Any time my dad went there, I begged him to buy me some. Doctor Who was my favourite show when I was younger. I watched it during the Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant era, I stopped watching half way through Matt Smith’s series.
My older brother used to have a lot of Lord of the Rings figurines. As far as I can remember, one would be delivered to the house every week with a small paint set and paint brush, as well as a picture of what it should look like once painted. He also had Pokemon cards.
My dad collects the special 50 pences. The ones with Peter Rabbit on the back and other designs. He much have at least £150 in 50ps now.
I’m not sure whether this counts as collecting but my Mam has every James Patterson book ever released. I suppose it does kind of count as collecting them but it’s mainly just because he is her favourite author.
I don’t think my little brother collected anything, or at least I can’t remember him doing so.
If I collected anything else, I can’t remember it so it mustn’t have mattered that much too me.
