When Your Parents Buy You FiguresWhen Your Parents Buy You Figures

Hi guys! I know there's a ton of blog posts about family and figures but I had a funny story today I wanted to share.

My parents are celebrating their anniversary in San Francisco and they've been sending me text updates with pictures and stuff. Today I got a bunch of texts from them asking about what company makes my "Nendroids" since they're in Chinatown. Both then proceeded to send me texts asking what I wanted, what I liked, etc. My mom was sending me pictures of figures like this ITEM #7140 and asking about all these different characters xD I guess it makes sense they accept my hobby because they used to own a comic store wayyyyy back when and my dad collects DC stuff so it's not really a big deal to them haha.

I thought it was pretty cool until I realized "oh my god, if they're in a store like that they're probably going to see some really nasty stuff" and I was horrified! I proceeded to text my mom about that and she was like "Nah, it's all mainstream stuff :)" I love my mom lol

Have your parents ever bought you figures just because they know you like it? Do your parents share your sentiments about the hobby or collect anything similar to figures themselves? I know many of you have bad experiences regarding family and figures but if you didn't how would you feel about your parents doing stuff like that for you? Funny? Way too awkward? Let's share!

My parents do not approve of my hobby of collecting figures.
I myself paid and buy.)

Your parents sound sweet! My mother once bought me some Sailor Moon valentines. My husband gave me the scale Akemi Homura figure last Mother's Day. I'm hoping he'll let me have a Fate Testarossa doll for Christmas.:)

My dad actually bought my first 2 of my collection in San Francisco. Unfortunately they were bootlegs, but I still display them only because I'd feel bad ^^;; anyways I wouldn't like for relatives or parents to buy unless they're familiar with it or they would pay for something I'd preorder. It's nice though that they don't mind and I just started collecting, so I have a few and I only collect certain figures.

Thanks for all the responses guys! I haven't read all of them but some of these are really funny/cute and others make me a little sad to read :c Just know that it's important to do what makes you happy!

My mom used to buy me figures, but since she's mostly online using her phone these days, she just gives me the money for figures I want for holidays. But my San figma was the last figure my mom actually bought herself, and it's one of my favourite figmas I own.

My parents dont care if I buy them really, but they're really negative about it with me. They just see it as putting dollars in a furnace lol. My parents would never buy me one, i've had to buy them myself. I wish they would be more accepting and understanding, but meh. One time they got really mad at me and threatened to break them all and throw them in the garbage bins;;

My parents don't buy me figures as I normally buy them myself and they would have no clue on what I'd like. If anything, I would probably pre-order something that comes around in Late Jun / Begin July and they would pay for it as a birthday present.

My grandma did the same as I ordered this (ITEM #78630) for Christmas and she paid for it.

lol, my folks would never buy me figures, though I think it's probably half from disapproval, and half from having no idea what to get. XD

Yeah…there’s no way my mom would ever buy me a figure, and I defiantly would not ask her for money to buy one. She doesn’t like anime and calls my figures “knick knacks”, bah!
