He’s the man, or at least that’s what I’ve said for years. I started to collected Mickey Mouse when I was around 13 or 14 years old. I still collect him and many of the Disney characters like Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, and Pluto. I still own things from all those years ago and some have either broke or been lost over time. When someone asks me what I want for my birthday or Christmas I tell them it’s easy. Anything with Mickey Mouse. I’m not even picky.
Here’s the story as to why I started to collect this little mouse. I have a sister that every time I decided to start collecting something when I was a kid, she decided she wanted to collect the same thing as me. I’d get so upset that I could just have something of my own. Then my mom told me one day to pick something I wanted to start collecting and it would be mine and mine alone. My sister wouldn’t be allowed to collect one thing of it. And Mickey is who I chose. It has stuck with me for over twenty-five years. And the things is, Mickey is timeless. It doesn’t matter how old you are or anything else. Almost everyone loves this little mouse.
