In April 2006 I was lucky enough to get involved with the Mr Men & Little Miss 35th Birthday Party.
Whilst doing this I was asked by a Taylor Herring (Mr Men & Little Miss Promotions) Representative, Whether I had ever thought of setting a Guinness World Record.
I immediately set about counting my collection, it took about 2 days and 4 counts but I finally got a figure of 2,225.
This included Books, Plushes, Toys, Figures, Ceramics, Bedding, Food and many other Weird and Wonderful Things.
I sent the relevant applications to Guinness about my claim, and was surprised sometime later that the Record had been set.
And in November I received my Certificate shown above.
After setting the Record i was quite shocked by the amount of interested the Record has generated.
I have since been on both BBC and ITV Local News, a Live Radio Show, about Ten Recorded Radio Shows and in Several Newspapers (Some of which can be seen Below).
