Laughing Your lucky that it only takes a day for you to count them. When I count mine (do it once a year) it takes a few days Wink


Counting my Made in china, I have just under 5500 animals.... But you´ll get there I´m sure. Wink

It is not important how many we have,but the dedication we clean and organise them with! Wink

I will try to count my China's today.Sometimes I wish I hadn't given my older ones to other children.I had a carpet full of them when I was 9.

I remember when I tried to arrange all my handpainted models on the floor.
They started from the small side of the bed and ended at the rear end of the long side.
If I would try to arrange them now,it would mean I am nuts! cyclops

Counting is a headache. I just have a count 10 minutes ago is around 1150 or maybe more. if talk about 5500, it will take another 3 to 4 years.

The main reason I´m collecting is of course because I love the animals, I want to get as many and as beautiful as I can. But the numbers is also somewhat important for me.

I´m aiming for 10.000, but I dont think I will stop collecting even if I get to that amount Laughing

My dream is to get like a museum of animals, with lots of vitrines and dioramas... Sigh, thats something for the future, I guess drunken

I used to have now a little bit more than 1400 models of wild animals which depict more than 400 different species. In addition I have about 200 prehistoric animals.
My collection was bigger before but, sometimes, I need to select the models and let some leaving my home...

I wish that Cristophe will live 100 years,so that he will be able to see my collection at the age of 40.I will try to make his dream come true! Very Happy

PS:I planned to establish my figurine-museum at the age of 30.Everyone will be free to have his own room inside,with many many displays!Your names will appear just above the doors,and small stories will accompany your models!

That's true for me. I'm not chasing quantities but am meticulous with quality. And the way the figures are displayed plays a crucial role for me.
I've just counted my figures, and found there are 112 pcs (plus 4 trees). All of them belong to wildlife as I don't collect farmlife and prehistoric animals.

88 of my figures are placed in zoogeographic displays:
- 29 in Africa
- 21 in Australasia
- 19 in Europe
- 19 in Americas

24 figures are not displayed - those are doubles, figures that don't fit others because of their scale, species that don't have relevant displays and some African animals who can't be located in the African shelf because of lack of space.
