Fizz, you are right, things should be, listened to, used, read or played with, whatever they are.
A friend asked my advice, she wanted to buy her daughter a very expensive limited edition Barbie doll, I said to her if she could afford to buy two, get two, one for the child to play with & enjoy & love, the other to keep in mint condition in it's box. She has done that. The child when grown up may have a valuable doll as a legacy. Years ago we didn't think of things given to us as being collectable.
