Sadly, I've always identified more with hoarders than with collectors. I understand feeling that something you no longer use might still come in handy in the future, but to buy useless stuff just to "have" it? I don't get it. As a kid I did start new collections almost on a daily basis. Still, looking back, I think it was triggered more by my -hoarders- idea that an empty butter container can be used as storage than about the actual collection. Any enthusiasm I had for those buttons or rocks faded when the next empty jar came along. You could of course argue that I collected empty containers, but I'm not sure it counts if you stash them in the back of your closet.

Anyway, this documentary about (grown up!) people collecting the little toys that hide in kindersurpise-eggs simultaneously entertained me, fascinated me and made me a little bit sad. My favorite part is when the woman being interviewed is truly amazed by people that don't collect anything: "I don't want to say that they're boring people, but they do lead a boring life". So, there you have it: my life is boring. Lucky for me there are great documentaries like this one to get me through  those long, long evenings. 

P.s. Who knew we all could have been rich if we had just saved all that plastic crap?
P.s.p.s. The documentary does not have English subtitles, sorry!
