Senior Brianna Howard has a collection of plushies and stuffed animals.

Students often have a lot of free time. Some spend that time collecting items, whether it be for fun, for memories or as a habit.

Porcelain dolls and other kinds of dolls are what eighth grader Emily Kinzie has a collection of.

“They are valuable and they were my grandma’s,” Kinzie said.

The perfect present for senior Brittany Howard is plushies and stuffed animals. She has a collection of three plushy plague doctors she got as gifts and a total collection of 33.

“I love my plushies,” Howard said.

They bring me a sense of comfort.”
