Here are photos of some of my Hello Kitty collection! (Don't mind the mess in the background; I'm trying to declutter. I feel like things always get messier before they get neater. :blink: )

I just came across the best thing in my Hello Kitty collection so even though this was an older post I thought I’d show her to you :D (I can’t believe I forgot to mention her when we were talking about it lol)
This is Kimmy! She wears a little hello kitty backpack but I’m not sure where it is right now

I have a huge care bears plush collection! The first 2 pics are of the wall in my current bedroom and the next 2 are photos from a photoshoot i did of my collection a year ago. I have since added nearly 100 more care bears since then XD
That’s amazing! The colours look so nice, the way they’re arranged
How are they attached to the wall?

I use these mini command hooks i bought from target and then tieing some thread around their neck. The hooks come in packs of 18 with wall safe poster stickers to put them up. Im trying to decorate my whole room without using any nails or screws :)

The pic where they’re all on the couch and in front of it is so cool!
Thank you! Its definitely my favorite picture ive done of them. But i dont get to keep them like that for long periods of time, because its a public space in the house and APPARENTLY places to sit are more important than care bears XD. But at my new place, i get to see my wall of care bears everyday and its the most wonderful thing :)

I love Miffy.... I have so much miffy stuff. I have a really huge plush of her too. She sits beside my workplace at home.



I also tend to "hoard" cool kitchen equipment, because cooking is a really big passion of mine. And plants, haha!


But ya know what I WISH I had the money to collect? Old glass eyes. That were in people's heads. I dunno why, but I wish I hadda bucket full. I'd peer into them and see what they've 'seen'.
Wow..... I kinda love that. Are those really that expensive? Won't most people think they are "haunted" or something? I'm really into those old porcelain dolls, but my friends lowkey despise that in me. :tongue:

Used glass eyes can range from 100 dollars up, the vintage and antique ones are far more expensive. I really fancy the German made ones, as they're really far superior to other eyes. I became fascinated with them in high school as I had a friend born without eyes and he had glass replacements. He'd take them out and let us check 'em out, and I was amazed at how truly beautiful they were.

My brother-in-law has a glass eye he named "Oscar" which he used to threaten to throw at us. He says if he dies before me, I get it. I don't want him to die before I get it, so I tell him I'm gonna break in his house and steal it, which he thinks is hilarious!

I love old dolls, the more beat up the better! They have such a sense of history around them. And they're often so well made, when it comes to the more expensive ones. (I have several tubs full of porcelain doll parts I intend to use in art. I bought a huge lot of them, plus I buy dolls and pull them apart for their pieces. If they're haunted, I am so gonna get it from them! LOL

Thats unfortunate thats hes broken, ive never seen a talking good luck bear so hes probably fairly uncommon! My favorite care bear changes day to day, like right now im really liking my 20th anniversary grumpy bear. Wish bear is a really good one too :).

I got him new when I was 6 for Christmas in 2004.
I remember sitting in Kroger Santa's lap and whispering in his ear "I want talking good luck bear!" Then running away giggling! <3
That's one of my favorite early childhood memories. <3
Then my sister went next and she asked for a glow in the dark share bear she was 4 going on 5 if not already 5 years old. She was so cute! <3

Thats amazing! I never had care bears as a child, although i secretly wanted one, but was too embarrassed about liking a colorful "girly" toy to ever ask for one. Once i had my own money to spend in high school i started buying a buuuuuuuuuuunch of care bears XD all that pent up desire kinda exploded into what i have now. Been collecting for 7 years :)

I LOVED the care bear commercials. I remember there was one particular commercial that had a tune that's been stuck in my head for over a decade. I tried for years to try and find that commercial again but couldnt til earlier this year on some random cartoon network commercial compliation. I was so happy when i found it, cause i was seriously beginning to think i made it up in my head. Now there is this awesome video that compiles ALL the care bear commercials from 2002-2007!!!! It's an amazing nostalgia fueled watch.

The commercial that was burned into my brain starts at 5:30 into the video. I had the phrase "Care Bears! The bear that you collect!" SEARED into my brain XD.

THAT ONE SHOWS OFF A CARE BEAR THAT WAS NEVER RELEASED! At pretty much that exact time stamp it shows a girl holding a jumbo sized Thanks a lot Bear, and while MANY of the care bears were released in that size, thanks a lot was never released as a jumbo. It makes you wonder what happens to all the toys that are shown off in commercials but never hit the shelves.
