What are children collecting today? Everything!

The Sheboygan Press of Sheboygan,WI sent a junior high school reporter out to find out what other kids are collecting today...and why.

Surprisingly there was a young stamp collector named Hillary (no relation to THE Hillary), who said that "she found a beautiful stamp when she was a little girl on a card from her grandmother, and ever since, she's been searching everywhere for new stamps to add to her collection."

Hillary, 12, is quoted as saying that she doesn't know what really made her love stamps so much; she just likes the feeling that she has accomplished so much by just collecting.

The Round-Up is sending Hillary a big bag of stamps she can share with her friends and classmates. You GO girl!

Shown above is a 1963 stamp from Monaco promoting youth philately.
