Oh my gosh... we so could talk!!!!I have a really big penguin collection. Every Christmas someone gets me something new. My favorite is a tin-toy type that you wind with a key. It has a sticker on it that says, "Keep away from children. Not a toy." I show it to my DH occasionally to show I'm a grown-up.
My Disney collection is eclectic. I have some art work, some antique spoons, a few snow globes, antenna balls, t-shirts, hotel stationery, figurines, dishes and utensils and other kitchen stuff, and my two youngest (7 & 9) have a Mickey and Friends themed room.
I get stuff I love, and when I look at it, wear it or use it, it makes me happy.
