Hi All - our cold weather has given me a chance to catch up. What an interesting subject, I have enjoyed reading all the answers.

My favourite solids are all the moveable ones - i.e. Boatride, Roulette Wheel, Flower Cart, Cinderella Coach etc. I think they are intricate and enjoyable and I also love all the boots, shoes and fruit.

The least favourite are the 'scene' solids - Igloo, Lighthouse, shimmering Oasis etc. although I do like the Little Red Barn. I don't collect the cameos.

I have between 230 - 250 solids and have been collecting for approximately 5 years.

I live in Australia.

What solid did you get as your first? My first was also a gift...the Empire Locket I still have the box, tag, perfume intact. It was a gift from a boyfriend in high school. I didn't start collecting them until a few years later though.

Hi Catherine,
Sorry to take so long in responding. Our computer at home has crashed and my
husband has been trying to fix it for the last few weeks. Between being out of
town and no internet service I go to the library once in a while and check on this website. That's where I am now.

My first solid was from my mother for Chirstmas and it's the orange fish with the blue eye. I think it came out in '92 or '93 and I've been hooked ever since. Back in those days I threw the boxes away - don't know what I was thinking!!

I have been collecting for a little over 3 years, I have 150+ solids and probably 30+ powders, I have not counted in a while!

My favorite solid is Shimmering Oasis
My least favorite is the Puppy in the tub
I wish I had a Magic Dragon!

My favorite powder compacts are the K. Bauman's

After Katrina my urge to collect compacts is down. They could be gone in a flash, and people and pets are much more important.

I am really sad for all the losses, and the unrescued pets!

I wish I knew how to spell check my posts!

Here is my list:

My most favorite solid: British Emblem (Lion)
Least favorite: Puppies
I am from: Hertfordshire, England
Number of solids in my collection: 25
Collector for: 16 years

Over the years I have had alot of different solids, but then decided I do not like them that much so I have sold them and bought other ones, but the prices are just so high and it has made me fussy!

[SIZE=14] IF[SIZE=1] I had the green Magic dragon - it was my favourite. Since I do not, it is the English Emblem. Least favourite: all ropes and cameos. I am serious about collecting since the Beautiful vanity came out which is my 2nd favourite. I only have 30 pieces now since I got rid of the ones I do not like
