Part of the fun of sports is all the collectible stuff that goes with it. Does your child have a sports collection?
When my son was very small, he started collecting those little plastic NFL and MLB helmets. He would spend hours playing out games with those helmets, even pretending the NFL helmets were tackling each other.
What about you? What sports stuff does your child like to collect?
Collectible sports memorabilia can remind your child of fun sports experiences and important people in his life. They can help him learn new things. It also means you always know what you can give your son or daughter for a gift!
There’s another reason to get your kid started with a collection: it is something you will treasure and save for their kids. I’m saving my son’s NFL and MLB helmets for his child someday.
My child doesn’t collect anything, you may say. Well, that’s either because no one started by giving him a collectible item or he never found anything he wanted to collect. You can start the collection for him by enticing him with some cool and worthwhile collectibles.
Here’s some fun and unique sports memorabilia for your child to collect:
- Sports robots. Very cool for your little robot lover.
- Pillow Pets. Seriously adorable for your snuggler.
- Mr. Potato Heads. I love these!
- Mini helmets. They are fun to play with too! (Buy one of those rugs that is marked like a football field and he can manage his own football game. My son did that and we still have his football rug. Yep, saving that for his kid too!)
- Teddy Bears with fleece blankets. Practical in cold weather and very cute too!
