What do you do with your collection?
Do you ever play with your animals?
Do you pet them? I love you 
I spend some time starring at them quite every day drunken

I look at them quite often (obviously) that's how I know what I do and don't have. My family are baffled that I know exactly what I have already without having to think about it, but most of my collection I have had my entire life so it kinda comes with the territory... Anyway, I add to it, dust it often, make comparisons between figures, maybe take some pics once in a while, and just enjoy them.

Adore, stare, make photo sessions, adore some more. No dust, because they're behind glass Wink 

In fact the little plastic figurines can be considered art, and i think that's how I look at them. i see them as if they were a beautiful painting or sculpture(as they are sculptures made by artists Rolling Eyes ) Very Happy

Showing my collection proudly to everyone who wants to see them, photographing them (even take some outside to get nice photos) and collecting more and more XD (Dusting, hmm, not that much actually.)

Most of my time spent with my miniatures is time spent hacking them apart or otherwise modifying them. I do stare, too, but more in scrutiny than adoration. This tends to lead to spotting flaws, then setting out to better them, usually by resculpting.

I do also stand in quiet mourning in the display room. They're mostly images of sad stuff, after all, my models. A kind of record of what's happening out there, or a teeny monument to it. Sort of an assembly of headstones, not to be too morose.

Every once in a while, my little sister wants to play with them, so we get them down and sort them, then set them up in a toy barn my dad made. Then they have wars. (Herbivores always win) Sometimes I just sit and stare at them.

whenever im online, one figure accompanies me at the desk.

I love to photograph them,  but sometimes I get relly picky and scrutinize them for flaws in paint Mad 

That's an issue that im seeing therapy for

I organize it, reorganize it, write lists for every category of animal and count them to see if the lists fits in with the numbers.
I make small displays on the top of my aquarium, the only place i have, where I can make displays.
Theese displays are changed nearly every time I have to do some work in the aquarium, and always when I have got some new figures.
I look at them, study them and compare them with pictures of the real animals. I also like to photo them, and show them to everyone who are interested.
I have to store my collection in shoeboxes, so dusting is not a problem, but I really wish I had some shelves to put my figures into. Perhaps I have to throw out some old books Rolling Eyes 
When I am sitting with my computer I always have one or two figures with me. Today it is the two Schleich lambs that will be retired 2014. I like them very much, perhaps better than the new ones. I look forward to see and hold the new lambs in my hands, and all the other Schleich news too.Very Happy

Laughing  I was retired 3 years ago, and don't have to run away to a job any more. I started collecting seriously about that time. I don't like sitting in a rocking chair knitting or making embroidery. So I have plenty of time, (but not plenty of money), and collecting animals give me a lot of pleasure. bounce Laughing It keeps my brain young. elephant rendeer monkey alien rabbit jocolor geek

I like to re-organise the display cabinets now and then - I love getting a new model - photographing the figurines outside is something I probably like doing the most - I do sometimes stare at my models, but not always in fondness, sometimes I think "I have way too many figurines"
