Do You Use the Items You Collect?Do You Use the Items You Collect?

I wasn't exactly sure what to call this. If you have a better suggestion let me know.

There's all sorts of "useful" anime merch. Everything from cups and plates to towels to clothing. But using things generally puts an expiration date on them. Eventually the cups and plates are going to get chipped in the dishwasher, or the design will fade, and fabric items get holes in them faster the more they're used and washed. Anime & game merchandise is often limited edition. You see where I'm going with this.

Is it better to have that maybe-irreplaceable item forever? Or do you get more enjoyment out of using it, even though it won't last forever?

For me, I think it depends on the item. I can't imagine not using my Fire Emblem DS, but I'm definitely more careful with it than a normal games console. Straps, on the other hand, are strictly for displaying, unless I don't love it or I have 2.

One of the only 'usable' items I have is my Mami daki, which I do use. I do have a couple Ymir (from queen's blade) items that I do not use though.

i like to use/wear my stuff, its like my figures are for showing off at my home, and the stuff that can be used outside of the house is to show off my collection/interest else ware.

Generally if I plan to use said item, I'll get two copies. That way if something happens to the one in use than I can always fall back on the second one if I truly want to use it, or it stays in the actual collection.

However, I try to make a point of using the merchandise I buy if they don't fall in the 'figure' category or 'exclusive when buying x product'. It justifies the money spent on those for my brain when I realize my 'Hobby budget' took a spiral down and I have to put Cosplay materials on hold XD

Depends on the item. Keychains that look fragile won't be used, but stuff like Patches, Carabiners, bags, scarves are all bought with the intention to use them. I also wouldn't use up stickers or generally things that are 1x use only.

I have to pervert oppai mousepads. I don't use them in the way of the mousepad use, because I don't want them to become dirty... But I...

Well anyways, I love my mousepads.

I almost always use my keychains and straps. Even though they might get old and dirty over time, I like looking at them. And I have a bunch of anime mugs and cups that I use regularly.

Clear files are mostly for decoration, on the other hand.

Unless it's super-limited edition, chances are I'll use the item. I use ITEM #152211 on a regular basis at school.

I'd collect useful items rather than more and more dolls with few potentials for photographing.

I will use the items that I collect, as I am not so keen on aftermarket...

For keychains and straps I do use it, for figures, I will display and play with it for poses and for stress relief sometimes. Most of my collections are quite durable on play so I think it is OK as well.
