I had a small collection of trolls when I was a child in the 60's--all named after Lost In Space characters. I was so pleased when my daughter started collecting them at about the same age. It started with a new Tahitian troll I gave her. I had none of my old trolls left to give her but she went way beyond what I did. I did buy her the same troll house I had when I was young. She won first place at the fair one year with this collection. She labeled each one with its name, built a bridge for some of them to sit under, and put plastic goats on top of the bridge. That was when she was about 8.

When I saw the trolls Mrj303 posted, I had to show off my daughter's collection, which is now packed away because she's off to college.

    I love it that you've passed the joy of collecting on to your daughter! Fabulous trolls!

    Thank you, stef. Trolls and Beanie Babies were her childhood collections. It will be interesting to see what she starts collecting as she begins her adult life.

    I'm sure trolls will still be in there somewhere...it's hard to pass up on your childhood collection when you got thrifting...
    I wish at least one of my kids had inherited the collector's bug... :(
    ...maybe my grandson...

    Hey Esther, you need to cut back on the troll juice. :)

    Thank you. I have a feeling the trolls are around for good. Even if she doesn't want them, I will want them and I will keep them for her kids.

    Check them for Dam trolls, some of them are worth hundreds.

    She's not interested in selling at this point but we should check them for value. Wish we had some of the troll animals. Those things really sell for a lot.
