The paper presents results of a pilot study on collecting as a psychological phenomenon. Collecting as a form of activity is analysed from the perspective of its motives, its final result and ways of working with collection objects. The aim of the pilot study was to reveal the content of collecting in children. A special questionnaire based on the object analysis of collecting activity was designed to explore the ways in which the main components of this activity reveal themselves. The data collected in three age groups (early school-age, early adolescence, late adolescence, 119 subjects altogether) showed that, on the one hand, collecting is a polymotivated activity which reflects the collector's system of interests, and, on the other hand, in the process of working with collection objects the collector puts into practice the different methods of organising his/her activity. The main components of collecting are interrelated.

Keywords: collecting, activity, motives of collecting, content of collecting
