Fridge Magnets

A refrigerator magnet or fridge magnet is a beautiful ornament attached to a small magnet which is used to post items such as memories or travel, places of historic importance on a refrigerator door. This simply serves as decoration. Refrigerator magnets can be in variety of shapes and sizes. Refrigerator magnets are popular souvenir and collectible objects.


Collecting magnets is a hobby that mostly people collect from their travels, or of a particular theme. They are sold at souvenir shops worldwide. A Russian collector has proposed the term memomagnetics (Russian: мемомагнетика), derived from the words memoriale (Latin) and magnetis (Greek) A collector of magnets would be called memomagnetist. These terms have been used by at least one Russian online community for magnet collectors.

In January 1999, Tony Lloyd, a teacher in Cardiff, Wales,  had largest collection of fridge magnets in Europe at that time, over 2000. As of January 2016, he had a collection of over 4500. In February 2018, whilst on holiday in Sri Lanka, his 104th country, Tony's collection surpassed 5,000 magnets.
