    any other fans?

    i have a small collection that i know is going to grow :happy bounce:

    i tend to get things that mean something to me. For instance i got bought the UK flag one for my birthday and i bought the US flag one to go with it. I also got the 40 years series as i share a birth year with Magic Kingdom.

    My most recent acquisition is a candlelight processional one from last year.

    Baleigh adores them...so much so that this has replaced pin trading for her. Her favorites are the "nerd" ones ;-) (ok, I'll confess, they're my fave as well)

    Would love to see a pic of the CP one, Brit.

    Colorful for sure, but I guess I continue to miss the point. I mean, I understand collectibles simply for the sake of collecting (in that the item appeals to a person's taste) but these just confuse me.

    Maybe it's the name? A combination of Vinyl and animation? :mental: Maybe I am trying to hard to get something that doesn't exist! :lol:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the CP one, Brit! Will have to hunt around on Ebay and see if I can find it.

    Tink,
    I think reasons for collecting are as many and varied as items collected...and trying to pinpoint why someone collects a certain thing is just a lesson in futility. I have a few of these on my desk at work, they represent special moments or favorite aspects of Disney and are safe enough (as opposed to pins) to keep on my desk around children. The students LOVE to stand at my desk and name off what each little Mickey represents. I've even had a few children act out an entire "role play" with them. Between those and my Snow White decal on my Mac, my desk is the "The Happiest Place in school!" LOL

    Of course, I asked Baleigh why she collected them and her response was quite different. She says she collects them because even though they look "funky and cool" they are still "Disney" and it's sort of her way of still being "in love with Disney" while still being teenager.

    See? Totally different reasons, but we ended up with the same collectible!

    Crazy innit it?

    No, not at all. I'm happy to have you share some insights into the attraction for them. That's what I'm not getting... usually, even though I may not want something myself (like the pins) I "get" the attraction for others. These, not so much. Not that they are the cutest little ******s, I just didn't connect on the collecting floor, so to speak.

    Baleigh's reasons for collecting make total sense to me. Cool, funky, Disney without being twee... :D

    i bought it 'second hand' Becca, i never did get into pins really and i think some of these are cute. I think a lot of effort goes into the designs too.

    EXACTLY!

    I agree, Brit...I love seeing how they make so many concepts come to life on such a unique canvas. I have some pins, though I never really got "into" trading them. i do love that I have pins from certain attractions that are now closed or soon to be closed. One of my most prized possessions is my Diamond Horseshoe Saloon Revue pin. Ahhhh memories!

    LOL, no this is very different for Baleigh than the pins were...she LOVED trading them. But the VM characters she only buys. The only time I've seen her trade was immediately after buying one, it was one she already had, so she traded with the cashier.
