In the year 2007, I went to a Salvation Army store and stumbled upon a lot and I mean a lot of nostalgia when I saw a VHS of Disney's The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Upon seeing the tape, I eventually purchased it along with another VHS tape of a Disney movie. Anyways, from that day on, I became a VHS collector.

Now eventually, I started collecting VHS tapes from other companies like Fox and Paramount. But when it comes to VHS collecting, the tapes I know how to find quicker than any other are Disney movies.

Some of the tapes I own are extremely rare like this demo tape of Pinocchio from 1992.

But the rarest tapes I have by far are two Nintendo promo tapes that were used to promote the releases of Star Fox 64 and Pokemon Red & Blue in 1997 and 1998 respectively.

With a collection of almost 300 tapes, you can only imagine what movies I have. Some of which include Toy Story, The Jungle Book, The Lion King and two box sets of the original Star Wars trilogy from 1995 and 1997.

When I joined YouTube in 2009, I began showing off my collection on YouTube and the videos I posted became more popular than I expected. I also realized that I'm not the only YouTube user who collects VHS tapes. There are literally tons of users on YouTube who collect VHS tapes.

One of my rarest tapes. Wiggle Time signed by all 4 original Wiggles
In 2011, things took a turn for the worst, the Nintendo 3DS was just about ready to launch and I wanted one so very badly. So in order to make some money, I decided to sell my original VHS collection but I ended up donating all my tapes to Goodwill instead. Later that same year, I went back to collecting and pretty soon, I got some really rare tapes like it was nothing.

This is proof on just how big my VHS collection is
My collection is so big that I don't even have a place to put it. It's all just scattered around my house. All in all, collecting VHS tapes is the most fun I've ever had when it comes to collecting stuff.
