People often forget that celebrities are people too and so they need hobbies just like anyone else. Furthermore, stars do a great deal of traveling and most often add to their collections while touring and one of the most popular collectible amongst celebrities is toys and games. They exist in a wide variety all over the world so they make the perfect choice for a celebrity traveler.
The type of toy a celebrity collects depends on what interests them. Some collectors like Julie Benz ( Dexter and Buffy the Vampire Slayer ) are drawn to dolls because they are fans of a particular time period or style. Others like Robin Weigert, ( Deadwood and Lost ) like photographs because they portray celebrities and characters from television shows or movies. Some celebrities like Jacqueline McKenzie ( The 4400 ) enjoy collecting board games like Scrabble. Still others collect porcelain and even autographs.
While many collectors of toys and games aren't toy collectors at all, but collectors of celebrity memorabilia including movie and television-related toys. It is a fact that since the earliest days of Hollywood the collecting of celebrity memorabilia has been a growing past-time even among celebrities. Especially with the collecting and giving of celebrity memorabilia as gifts. As have the specialty shops that sell celebrity memorabilia and autographs.
