The hobby of collecting diecast is indeed no death. Some began to like diecast because ‘infected’ friends there are also because they have been ‘stuffed’ by parents from childhood. Are you one of them?
For serious collectors, various methods are used to complete the collection. Sometimes to get the desired item, we have to spend quite deep. Yes, that is the art of having a hobby as a collector, regardless of the type of items collected.
But don’t worry. It turns out that the hobby of collecting diecast also has a number of benefits. Especially for your relationship with your favorite son. Some of these benefits include:
Can Be Done With Children
Surely it would be more fun if there are friends who can accompany you to run a hobby. Collecting diecast is one hobby that you can do with your child. If necessary, you can buy two diecast pieces for each edition. One for children to play, while one for your collection.
Also take advantage of the diecast hunting time as a moment to strengthen your relationship with children. Your child will be happy if you take a walk to the toy store, diecast exhibition events or to other places where you used to hunt diecast.
Invite your little hero to get to know various types of vehicles in the world through diecast. Starting from sports cars, public transportation (buses, taxis), special vehicles (police cars, ambulances, fire engines) to heavy vehicles such as trucks or cranes.
You can explain how each vehicle works, expand your knowledge of car brands from various countries and their characteristics, get to know the uniqueness of special vehicles in each country (for example why the shape of a taxi in one country is different from the others) and so on.
Investment that can be inherited
With good conditions, the diecast that you have now can be sought after by collectors and offered at a high price in the next few years. It can even reach 10x the price when you buy it.
So it is not wrong if diecast is one form of investment that can be inherited. Teach your son how to care for and maintain a diecast collection. Explain that this diecast can be very valuable in the next 10 or 20 years.
