I am currently collecting the x-men action figures from toy biz from the 1990s but still have my old my little ponies I am not sure how long I am going to hang on to the ponies although. I am hoping my cousin still has here collection of the queen of power dolls.She had the whole set and I would like to have them.

My only complaint is some of the play sets for the line are over 50 dollars a set  I can not seen to find lose mint toys I want to display them some day . Hope fully I will have some photos soon.

As a note I have down sized my collection I had every thing from the mini steel ones to the 10 inch toys now I just collect the five in ones and are still adding to it.

I collect toy dogs. I've been collecting off and on since I was a kid. Twice I've gathered a fairly respectable collection and twice I've given it all away thinking I was done collecting. I've finally learned my lesson though. Even if I get tired of collecting I ALWAYS come back to it. The dogs I have now will not be sold no matter what.
My third go-round started out a bit different. I decided to just collect dog virtual pets or robotic pets like the FurReal Friends, Poo-Chi, Giga Pets digital doggy and Nano Puppy. But I was bored one day and looking at toy dogs on Amazon when I came across some of the Calico Critters/Sylvanian Families/whatever the heck they're calling them now dog families. I kind of fell in love with them. I ordered the Dalmation and Yellow Lab families and now I'm back to collecting all kinds of toy dogs now.
I'm a guy but I have no problems buying toy dogs from girls' lines. I own three Barbie dogs and wouldn't mind having some Sweetie Pups. Especially the collie. Even as a kid I had a Strawberry Shortcake plush dog.
I almost didn't get that though. I was in a Kay Bee toys with birthday or Christmas money and I was having trouble finding anything I wanted. My mom kept pointing at the dog and saying "Here's a dog. You like dogs. Get this" and I kept resisting because it was from Strawberry Shortcake. Finally I gave in and bought it. I was glad I did. I must have been about eight or nine.
My Holy Grail is not an 80s or 90s toy at all. It's a late 70s toy. Duke The Super Action Dog. A very large german shepherd action figure. I love german shepherds. They're my favorite breed. I've been closer to my various shepherds than I am or was with most the humans in my life. And when I was five my parents' shepherd saved my life. I'll buy almost any german shepherd toy.

I collect mostly 80's toys and anime collectibles. I'm not a completist either. I can't really stand boxes. My collection of stuff is mostly random to.

80's: Rainbow Brite, Jem, Spectra, Rose Petal Place, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, Care Bears, CPK
Wuzzles, Popples and also stuff from Herself the Elf, Golden Girl, Shimmers, Nosy Bears and a Q-Bert.

Anime: Too many series to Count But I do have a lot of Sailor Moon, Ojamajo Doremi and Pretty Cure (all series) items. I Have a lot of Shounen stuff as well. Would like to have some vintage magical girl items but I don't really have the money (a pelsia pendent for $400! OUCH!)

other: collects Winx Club, W.I.T.C.H.,disney afternoon (90s girl) and recently Lalaloopsy dolls.

Well that's me and what I collect. I just wish I had my own house to put more stuff in but oh well.

I figured I would add in what I collect as well :-)  I have a TON of toys from when I was younger that I would like to 1 day collect including:

G1 MLP
LLL
SSS
Calico Critters
Rainbow Brite
and I am sure there are other things as well but I can't think of them right now lol

Besides that there are actually only 2 things I actively collect and they are
Precious Places (I am sooo close to having the entire set! I am mainly collecting other versions) and Betty Spaghetty

Calico Critters are awesome! I have the Dalmation and yellow lab families. They're still around too. I got mine on Amazon a few weeks ago.

I collect teddy bears, dolls and toys from the 80s, though none of these categories is mutually exclusive.  I'm sort of a half-completist; I'd prefer that a doll or toy has as many of its original pieces as possible but I'm not too picky, and unless it's a collectible Barbie I end up throwing the box away.

My 80s collection consists mainly of 80s era Care Bears.  I also collect Lady Lovelylocks, Moondreamers, Rainbow Brite, Strawberry Shortcake and G1 My Little Pony.

Mostly Barbies but anything from the 80s and 90s I can get my hands on, especially if it's something I had as a kid that got lost. I really really want to collect Baby Face dolls!

I collect toys from the 80s and 90s (with a few from the 70s as well). I am constantly adding to my collection. I also have kept a lot of toys and dolls from my childhood. Here is a link to my flickr account:
