PostSubject: I have counted my animals...   Thu Sep 24, 2015 12:48 pm

Yes, I have counted my animals today. Why? Because people ask me how many I have and well, I'm curious myself. I mostly say: Around 350/400 animals to many people who ask. But I never knew the exact number. After years of collecting, my collection is grown big and fast and isn't stopping any time soon with growing XD

Curious?

I have.....

600!

animals! Very Happy

I never, never would have thought that I would reach such a number!

I reached this number also because of you guys! cheers

Whoe! Up to an other 600 maybe? Wink XD

Exactly! Laughing That is why I said 350/400 to people. Because, I couldn't have more than that right? XD

I really don't want to know how many Breyers I have Rolling Eyes I'm sure with all the SMs and micros it's a lot! Laughing Just counting all the Breyers in this room right now there are 99 horses.... that's not including the non-equines, Peter Stones and other brands, and all the Breyers elsewhere!! affraid

It's even scarier to think that the majority of these goes to every live show too. bounce

That is A LOT  Shocked

It must have taken you a long time to count them...if it was me, something would surely have disturbed me whan I got to 403, - and then I could start all over again  Laughing

That's a lot really although it always depends from who reads it. I am sure that to some collectors 600 is a very sensate number, to others it is a huge collection. I believe mine is more or less the same as yours. Very Happy
I have only counted my foxes that are slightly more than 100. But one thing it is for sure, joining STS makes our collections explode. bom Laughing

Why would you think it would be disgusting?

(I just thought a matrix of them would be cool. Like a small army of awesome bringing good will.)

Why would it be?
If you like every single model and you are happy with them, why would it be disgusting? Wink
I hope one day to reach over a 1000 models myself, and I would be proud of it Wink Very Happy

Thank you all Very Happy

Haha, yes, I counted them and it took me half an hour in total XD

Yes, I adore and love every single animal I own in my collection <3
I apparently have a big heart XD
I try to take my time to photograph each animal (or small group) and place them on my blog and then in my collection :3

I keep a database, so I don't have to 'hand count' and I am rapidly approaching 1000. I hope to reach that goal next year. To hope I have reached it by december would be a little bit overzealous.

If I count:
1- My small plastic animals
2- My old broken-repaired animals
3- My fantasy figures
4- My childhood bath animals
5- My old horses
6- My regular known-brand collection

That makes...

Around 2200 animals.

My official database has 2183 at the moment, but it does not include many generic figures (esp. Lepidoptera) that I am hoping to get genus/species names for or some small, vintage things. So, I prob have 2200-2300.
