The Top Ten

1 Coins

My favorite

Some coins are extremely rare!

It would be good to collect coins and it would be fun also I have collected many coins some of different countries too.

Numismatics is a hobby that deals with the collecting, studying, and making coins, paper money, and medals.
It is a hobby that has became a classic pastime of people of all ages. Currently, The ANA and spruce crafts have been very successful, and numismatics will always remain a very rewarding (and profitable :) ) hobby.

4 Movies

Much like novels, film provides us a mirror into so many different worlds and gifts viewers possessing diverse taste; there's literally something for everyone: romance, adventure, action, comedy, drama, fantasy, music, and so on so forth.

Whether you are a film elitist who strives to amass all Oscar-worthy opuses or an entertainment lover who gravitates to one or more specific genres, these are treasures to enjoy and share with the whole family, passing them on to the next generation much like a priceless heirloom. And with the advent of digital streaming and videos, clutter does not have to present the problem it previously did. The same can be applied to other media such as novels as well.

Film and novels-- simply a win-win in terms of collecting and can be personalized to specific tastes or moods! " - Listlover77

I collect stuffed animals and they are really fun to play with. I play a game with them. I pretend my stuffed animals are in a kingdom and Bad things happen that they have to fix. It's really fun. Make sure to collect stuffed animals. And my favorite one is my Lego man stuffed animal. I also have a panda Pillow Pet and road runner. I have 39 stuffed animals. I like the Webkins brand of stuffed animals.

well, that is one of my biggest hobby's, cinema will never die - MatrixGuy

Even you now that stuffed animals are not a choice I still think people should collect stuffed animals cause they keep me company and there fun to pretend they are real and talk to them. I have 25 stuffed animals.

5 Books

Diverse works of literature that span cultures, places, and generations. Everything resides in the pages of a book: adventure, drama, comedy, satire, current events, history, fantasy, parallel universes, allusions to global world, pop culture, facts, information, entertainment, educational ideas, romance, instruction, guidance, and most importantly imagination. No price tag can be attached to that. Above all, if you are an avid, die-hard collector, (you may need some serious funds) first editions can yield some serious cash. Although, for true bibliophiles, this would prove a difficult proposition.

Books are simply priceless. - Listlover77

Some books are interesting - ElSherlock

I have a lot of these - SirSheep

they take you to a whole new world

Art is such a wonderful way to decorate your home and gives limitless enjoyment to owners. It may also be considered an investment and tied to profit if you wish. I happen to collect Sandra Kuck and Thomas Kinkade art, and these are pieces I truly treasure and will never part with, not for amount of money. - Listlover77

You're the dummest persan ever since you can only make art!

It's cool

9 Antiques

Heirlooms that may be passed from generation to generation, priceless in value yet a solid investment, amazing conversation pieces and doorways to explore history and culture on a deeper level if you dare or desire, and depending on the type of antique which may include but not be limited to paintings, jewelry, desks, rocking chairs, clothing, appliances, flatware, china, Porcelain figurines, lamps, etc... they can beautify your living space or home. - Listlover77

Older things are always fun to look and and appreciate. The craftsmanship and detail that was put in to them is amazing and should be remembered.

I would collect plastic spring rocking horses and coin operated horses

As a lover of everything vintage.. Collecting antiques are an addiction to me.

11 Awards

I love collecting awards! - tropicaljay

The best thing to show you are better than someone else. Also, you can show you are intelligent, but the best thing about it is that you can remember your techniques that you used to achieve does goals. You could make a wall in your room or in the library full of these awards.

Go get off of your but and make something of yourself. Maybe if you got up you could get some awards and collect those.

I agree! I love collecting Awards! - GirlyAnimeLover

12 Cards

I just started collecting card decks if you would like to start I would recommended theory 11 decks or bicycle decks, collecting decks is also really fun

There cheap and easy to find and you can find many funny and interesting cards

I wanna start collecting cards because they're free if you're the receiver. Cards are awesome because they hold memories like birthdays and graduation.

Practical for entertaining, and like someone said early, some decks are more than worthy of being called art.

13 Trading Cards

Trading cards are great to collect and can raise in value over the years.

Trading cards like Magic the Gathering make for excellent collecting. The art in the cards are now considered a kind of folk art. Also, they are incredibly easy to store because they are nearly the same size as a baseball card so you won't we wanting for ways to store them. Like baseball cards, they can range in price from a few cents to the low thousands.

I think collecting trading cards are awesome, remembering some memorial from athlete that I love.

I love Pokemon trading cards and I have collected each and every Pokemon card and they are all in perfect condition.

19 Music

This is me. The majority of the songs that I collect are by Andy las.

It's a part of my life,can't stay without it for a single day.I listen to it everyday.I'm a music lover. You'd be surprised to hear that I download about at least 60 songs in a single month. Think about how much songs I will have in my library in every single year. That is what I called a true music lover.

Music is what I like to download the most out of ask the things that are in the top ten collectable things.

This is what I collect the most out of all the things that are in the list. That is what a true music lover will say.

20 Dolls

I always thought dolls were cool! When I was a little boy I had them, and then got rid of them when I was called names, but now I started collecting again!

Sometimes I would play with dolls when I was younger and I kept all of them and now I have little cousin or just family that loves to play with them and it makes me happy every time they ask for them

Dolls just bring happiness to little girls and big girls because they understand you when your sad cause there always there for you.

Dolls are like security blankets for little girls and then to have your collection it brings you back

21 Guns

Great investment, appreciate with inflation and collector value. Firearms generally appreciate at about 5% to 7% a year, can't get that in any bank. Firearms are of real and true value, they represent freedom and it is hard to put a price on that.

Guns are the rich mans collection but sure enough many people have DOZENS of guns. That's why we made 'Goatguns' which are miniature toy model rifles for people who want to collect guns. Build those stashes up! - goatguns

Even people who aren't into guns will often have 3+. This is way more collectable than this list suggests.

This would be my #1!

22 Comic Books

Comic books are the greatest things ever! You get to go to a whole nother world and you get to see action adventure and excitement! Plus they'd be worth a ton in a few years.

Old military ww2 silver age comics are thru the roof. Price golden age comics on ebay. Golden and silver age comics will never lose value because there are less and less in quality condition available year after year. Preserve your paper people!

It's the thrill of the hunt in tracking down old issues.

Comic books are awesome and they are valuable too especially those golden age ones! But even if you don't read old ones you can still get reprints.

Dvds are not only fun to collect, but really fun to watch.

It's not really fun to collect, and I don't watch it muh - GirlyAnimeLover

26 Hot Wheels

This is a cheap hobby that will last a lifetime. These model cars are fun to play with, cheap and really quite cool to look at. They are just like their life sized counterparts, they just are smaller and don't run.

I think this should be higher on the list.

Awesome

They are extremely fun and are cheap to collect

28 Baseball Caps

Hats are awesome

Hats?

U SUCk

29 Board Games

In a digital age, these provide a great alternative. Awesome tool for teaching about critical thinking, problem-solving, trivia, word-recognition, vocabulary, computation,patterns, or 1,001 other skills depending on which game you select. Wonderful for family game night, holiday parties, rainy days, summertime, or any time in between. Provide not only mental engagement but most importantly: fun!

Games for all ages, all skill levels, all interests, and well-worth the investment! Some of my favorites are Scrabble and Clue. On a side note, I actually composed a Top Ten List of Games For Family Game Night. Great for "go offing the grid" or unplugging from tech overload, too. This generation more especially. - Listlover77

I love board games I have like 10 board games

I have many old and new board games and I love to play with them

30 Statues

I collect statues from the places I have been, they are only small but are a great reminder of the beautiful things you have seen in that country.

SO CUTE AND SO MUCH FUN

31 VHS Tapes

Vhs tapes are out of style but still cool to collect and some tapes actually pesureve history like the original release of Star Wars

32 Foreign Currency

My YouTube channel about them “Global banknotes”. Foreign currencies are awesome you learn a lot about the country just at them. Having something from every country in the world or from many different places is awesome and it teaches you a lot about other countries and culture.

33 Miniature Buildings

They could be legos

34 Fossils

@GirlyAnimeLover yes, it is too much! - gymnastics

Every fossil is a word in the geologic book of earth's prehistoric life that has been millions of years in the making. It is even better when the fossils are ones that you find, as before you, no living organism has laid eyes upon said fossil for millions of years, long before humans ever recorded their short, comparatively meaningless history. You unearth a new discovery with every piece of shale split. The urge to find more is omnipotent.

Fossils are great because they show a time of the
Past, they also bring back maybe a fight, or a mating
Dance so I recommend collecting fossils

Isn't that too much? - GirlyAnimeLover

36 Toys/figurines

Really easy to find, cheap and can be really good quality. If collecting toys from famous T.V. shows, movies etc. They can become worth a lot of money as soon as they become around 10-20 years old.

Bring back your inner child. You can buy any kind you want, doesn't matter.

I have so many figurines and stuffed animals. They are the best!

I love pop bobble head

42 Snow Globes

I used to collect snow globes when I was younger, and I had a collection of about 30+ but I used to leave them on the window sill, and after time, the water evaporated out of them, and the sun going through the glass actually burnt my wooden window frame.

That would be a good collection
