Newcomers to Vinylmation will be able to learn all the basics about the hobby. Veterans will learn tips that will help improve your collections. Claudia, take it away…

So… you got up extra early for the new release (either at D-Street or online), got your “must-have” series or LE, and returned home to find that your vinylmation collection is taking over your house. What to do???? You could:

  1. Rent a storage unit for your collection.
  2. Move back-in with your parents so there’s more room for your vinyls at home.
  3. Dig a new basement under your house.
  4. All of the above…
  5. Keep reading for a better solution.
No need to take drastic measures, because Collecting with Claudia is here to help. Displaying your Vinylmations in an organized manner is the best solution. This allows you to visually enjoy your collection while protecting them from dust and “sticky fingers” in space-saving cases. Here is a list of display cases available for sale; however, this is by no means a complete list (for 3 inch Vinylmations):
  1. Three tier clear acrylic display case from The Container Store. These cases are stackable and the tiers can be removed according to your preference. This display case allows you to store approximately 12-15 vinylmations on 3 different levels. You can check it here.
  1. Wall Display Case from Michaels. This display case is known as the “Shot Glass Display Case,” where you can store up to 28 vinylmations. When buying this case, don’t forget to use your Michael’s coupon so you can save money (more saving means more money to BUY MORE VINYLMATIONS!!!!!). You can check it out here.
  1. Clear tackle box trays are a great way to store your vinylmations, and they are easy to take with you to trade events or when you go to the Disney Parks. These can be found in the sporting goods section of most big-box stores. For added protection, you can place your vinylmations in small zip-lock bags which can be found in the craft section at Walmart.
  1. Curio cabinets are not just for your grandma’s knick-knacks anymore, they can also be an ideal way to display your vinylmations. You can also use the “Stairstep” rack inside your curio cabinet for a more organized look. You can check this out here.
  1. If displaying 9 inch vinylmations or 2 figure sets, doll-sized display cubes are a great idea (these can be found at Walmart, Michaels, The Container Store, and most hobbie shops).

There is no point in accumulating collectibles if you can’t enjoy them. Don’t store them… display them! “And remember to KEEP ON COLLECTING!!!!”
