So how about some quick background? As a kid I loved frogs in fact they were my favorite animal back then (they are #2 now, the platypus is # 1 lol). I used to catch them and kept them in cages :( but I was a kid then. My first major frog collectible was a giant frog stuffed animal that was actually my mom's when she was younger. It looked more like a salamander body wise but had a frog head and webbed feet. Sadly I lost that long ago. :(
Many years later in San Francisco, I had a hard time keeping stuff because i was homeless but i managed to hold on some frog stuff. When I got permanent housing there, I did not get much more, but once I moved to Indiana, I did. most of my collection was purchased here in Indiana and as i said, there are quite a few that were gifts or became mine by default(like the bathroom stuff I got when my ex friend and I moved away from each other years ago).
SO LETS TAKE A LOOK SHALL WE?
Starting on the wall in the back,you can see my craft frogs and a Valentine decoration. The two green frogs were in the crafting section at Wal-Mart and i bought them because they were cheap and looked good. That is also why i bought the sun catcher. Ironically, he had been lost for over a year because he was on a shelf and due to being clear, i could not find him in the dark closet. The Valentines Day decoration was from a four pack i believe. I got it at Dollar Tree.
Next up, we have a broken thermometer that instead of tossing, i just added to my collection.Also on the wall, we have a fog prince pillow that I got at Toys R Us and next to him are two (2) frog related Golden Guides.
On a side note, I will eventually show my Golden Guide collection. I am nowhere near having the complete collection or all of the ones that i had as a child but i'm getting there.Next up we have a garden decoration, a bathroom cup behind him, a toothbrush holder, 2 Ty beanie babies ( normal size and a McDonalds one), a Littlest pet shop frog from the blind bags and 3 colored frogs from a 4-pack at Dollar Tree. The regular sized Ty Beanie Baby was a gift from a neighbor and the cup and toothbrush holder were from the aforementioned move.
inside the cup we have a dog toy that i bought for the neighbor's dogs to play with at my house, a frog holding a rose, a dog wearing a frog shirt, and a "70's" frog plush. The rose frog and dog were gifts and the 70's frog I got at GoodWill.
Here is a close-up of the "Dollar Tree" frogs and the LPS frog.
In front of the soap dispenser (better pic of the dispenser coming up) we have a New Years light up frog that an ex gave me while we were dating, a purple frog and a green frog that I got at GoodWill, and a broken frog inside a garden decoration (both of which were gifts from a neighbor).
A frog I bought in San Francisco and a frog an ex gave me in SF (the NYe one was also from SF but a different ex), a green frog I got at Goodwill, and two frogs that light up when hit that i got at Family Dollar.
Family Dollar frog water bottle.
Ivy Tech Plush frog that was a gift from Cassie (she did Collector's Talk with me on my yt channel) and that garden decoration I mentioned that was given to me by a neighbor.
A book I got in San Francisco I believe and a horned lizard that I got at Goodwill. Before anyone says anything I know its a lizard and not a frog but thought it was cute to add as its nickname is the horned toad.
Here's a pic of my collection that's on the shelf. So that's my frog display as of now. i plan to add much more of my collections here, so stay tuned. Below are more pictures of this display. in October, catch my Ghostbusters display!
