Comments: What weird and wonderful things do you collect?

Collection at the Museum of brands in London

The Museum of Brands is bursting at the seams.

Its collection of 12,000 packages, cartons and wrappers from things like games, toys and chocolates are now on display in London.

The items date back to Victorian times and go all the way up to what we buy in the shops now.

But the museum's collector says he's not found everything he wants to collect just yet.

We wanted to know what cool things you collect at home.
