My most favourite toys ever have been books and bricks - Lego bricks mainly.
My dad fell in love with Lego when it first came out in Germany, and justified spending some of his little money on it by getting it for his baby daughter. So I literally grew up with the coloured bricks - and back then there were only white, blue and red ones and nothing else - no windows or roof tiles, no wheels or figures... *g* The Lego love has stuck, I'm kind of collecting some of the sets of the fandoms I love and even undo and redo them from time to time.
The mic is my newest toy since I was introduced to recording podfic and read_lotr_aloud...

When I was small my grandfather introduced me to collecting stamps. I haven't kept up with doing that properly for long, but have kept all stamps I find beautiful in a box, just cut out of the envelope. These are my favourites of the last few years.

These two are my lucky coins staying in my wallet all the time:
A Danish one-crown piece and the last fifty <i>pfennig</i> piece I got before we switched to the Euro.
