From fishing lures to a family of cockroaches, kids show off their unusual collections in TLC’s new one-hour special My Kid’s Obsession. 

Produced by Sharp Entertainment, the special is set to air Dec. 28 at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT.

It highlights four bizarre collections and the kids behind them. In this case, the collections include vacuums, fans, a cockroach family of over 1000, and a set of over 7000 fishing lures that might be in the running for a Guinness Book of World Records title for biggest fishing lure collection.

“What drew us to the My Kid’s Obsession were the unique stories of all of these amazing children that are full of personality. The way they pursue their passions, no matter how eccentric, aligns so perfectly with TLC’s mission to tell authentic real-life stories that empower. I’m sure that our viewers will fall in love with these kids, just like we did,” a TLC Production executive told realscreen in an e-mail.

Sharp also produced My Crazy Obsession. That series ran for two seasons on TLC (2012 – 2013) after a successful special in 2011. It featured a number of adults with eccentric collections who have gone to extreme lengths to add items to them.
