I have ove 630 things of aardman 3 years of lovely collecting!
I've been collecting since...heaven knows when!
But I'm well impressed with all the stuff you have - you've got more than me. I hope to boost my collection further by looking into flea markets, charity shops and the like. I'm in no hurry but it'll be a collector's paradise next year!
On my desk, standing on a tiny globe of the world (he's into world domination, actually) is my plush holding a blue transistor radio - he thinks he's doing stuff for the BBC World Service!
I have metal badges (including a treasured porthole badge), socks (you know about them i.e. topic called Let's Talk About Socks!), two T-shirts, a W&G radio,cuddly , and and a were, two watches, several figurines, newspaper and magazine articles from (near enough) the last two decades, three tins, one alarm clock, three air fresheners, one toothbrush holder, one soap holder, one pencil case, two sets of pencils with several of our chums in different poses, one HMV poster, an exclusive poster featuring the Almighty Nick P and Gromit that was given to me by my best friend at the BBC, Creature Comforts bottle tops from bubble baths, a cuddly Andrew the penguin from CC Heat Electric ads, two cuddly Ginger chickens, one cuddly Mac chicken, one COTWR signed poster from the Almighty Nick P, 7 books relating to W&G and Aardman and - the most treasured of all - correspondence from The Almighty Nick P!
I'm sorry I have no pictures to upload like yours at the mo but I'll try my level best to get some as well as more from my archive.
Yours back in the swim (until I go on my hols)

Josephine! You corresponded with Nick P? Please tell us more!!
Oh, Fish, old friend! I have it framed on the wall above my desk at home but - for reasons concerning the House Rules - I can't upload it in it's entirety but only in part. First, I'll have to carefully get it out of the frame before scanning it, which I'll endeavour to sort out for you.
It was twelve years ago when I wrote my version of "War and Peace" to the Almighty Nick P about W&G and how much the dynamic duo -and Nick's work - meant - and still mean - to me. My dad (RIP) was alive then. It was shortly after Nick won his third Oscar for A Close Shave that I felt I had to write from the heart.
(It is better that those we admire hear about how much we love and appreciate them from us whilst they are still around than when it's too late)
Anyway, I remember feeling nervous and shaky after posting it off because of the way I wrote it - it was as if I was talking to an old friend over a cup of tea and biccies about things like childhood memories that the films evoke - like 's wool shop etc.
At the risk of repeating myself, I've never had the honour of meeting the great man!
Imagine the surprise, delight and thrill when my gran (RIP) rang me at my old workplace to tell me there was a card from Bristol and that it was written by Nick Park! She read it out to me over the phone! Talk about being chuffed to a zillion mintballs! Boys, oh boys!
In a nutshell, The Almighty Nick P said he was touched by what I had written, thanked me for my support and encouragement and commented about a newspaper article that printed the wrong picture of his dad!
There is an interesting post script to this, Fish. The journalist who wrote the article that the ANP was talking about is now a good friend! After I showed him a copy of Nick's correspondence (the orignal NEVER leaves the house unless there is burly 'heavy' to carry it for me tee-hee!!!!), he told me he remembered being frustrated - and gutted - that the newspaper in question published a photo of an entirely different person to accompany his article - especially after the effort made of having a photographer with him to set up a shot of Nick's dad posing with cuddly versions of & to compliment the piece.
No wonder he was gutted! I totally understood where he was coming from because I'd have been blazing at the photo library over their monumental mix-up...to put it mildly!
Yours forever chuffed!

I don't have very much other than the DVDs (and two sets of the original 3 shorts in VHS), a small gromit plush from the late 90's, a few old calendars from about the same time period, a kid's meal toy of in the wrong trousers, and a large like the one in the back of MM93's pic up top and in Kieran's next to the large - my sister found it at a church thrift shop in 1999 or 2001. I also picked up the Art of COTWR and Creating 3-D Animation (blue cover) books this year after reading about them in the forums. I think I also have a few Chicken Run kid's meal toys but can't remember where I put them or what they are. That's about it.
AWESOME, Josephine!! You must have been chuffed to a zillion mintballs to get that!!
