    Rocks, my daughter collects rocks. pebbles actually. it’s um, sort of irratating. I have not a clue how to make her stop, other than “stop pickin gup those rocks” but she ignores, and well, yeah.

    I forgot — he collects rocks, too. I gave him a shoebox “the rock box” and he has agreed to keep it on the front porch.

    With his bottle cap collection.

    MY son collects stones, rocks, fossils – his school bag every day is full of handfuls of them he finds on the school driveway. He sorts them all, categorises them, washes them – jeeez. He wants to be a peleantologist. Yeah, and he’s 7….

    amen. especially those little hard-plastic dinosaurs with all the spikes on their back – OUCH! One I hope we can avoid collecting: those little micro-men (I think they’re called play-mobil or something?) and polly pockets (hopefully boys are exempt from this).

    Oh, the Legos. Don’t you just love stepping on them in your bare feet?
