Souvenirs
A SOUVENIR (from French , for a remembrance or memory), MEMENTO, KEEPSAKE, or TOKEN OF REMEMBRANCE is an object a person acquires for the memories the owner associates with it. A souvenir can be any object that can be collected or purchased and transported home by the traveler as a memento of a visit. While there is no set minimum or maximum cost that one is required to adhere to when purchasing a souvenir, etiquette would suggest to keep it within a monetary amount that the receiver would not feel uncomfortable with when presented the souvenir. The object itself may have intrinsic value, or be a symbol of experience. Without the owner's input, the symbolic meaning is invisible and cannot be articulated

Proof Of Purchase
PROOF OF PURCHASE is often required for sales promotions and manufacturer rebates as evidence that the customer purchased the product. When multiple purchases are required to redeem these rewards, it is referred to as a PREMIUM INCENTIVE or COLLECTOR MECHANIC. Traditional proof of purchase systems required the consumer to send some portion of the packaging, as defined by the product's manufacturer, or the sales invoice. Unique codes printed on packaging are increasingly used as a mechanism for proof of purchase. Consumers can submit the code electronically for validation against a central database, thus establishing proof of purchase. Such systems allow manufacturers to develop a direct relationship with the consumer, for use in short term sales promotions, loyalty systems and collection and profiling of consumer data. Stores which accept returns may require proof of purchase, often in the form of a receipt

Boxtop
A BOXTOP, in the context of being a proof of purchase , is understood to be the upper portion of a product box, detached, and mailed as part of a claim for a radio premium or other advertising offer. During the 1930s through 1950s, cereal boxtops were usually the most common proofs of purchase used to claim such premiums. (UPCs , which debuted in the 1960s, later served this purpose.) Popular cereal boxtops of the period were Wheaties, which sponsored Jack Armstrong, the All-American Boy ; Kellogg's Pep, which sponsored The Adventures of Superman

; Ralston-Purina, which sponsored Tom Mix Ranston Straight Shooters; and various General Mills, particularly Cheerios and Kix, which sponsored The Lone Ranger

Cigarette
A CIGARETTE, or CIGARET, is a small cylinder of finely cut tobacco leaves rolled in thin paper for smoking . The cigarette is ignited at one end causing the cigarette to smoulder and allowing smoke to be inhaled from the other end, which is held in or to the mouth; in some cases, a cigarette holder may be used, as well. Most modern manufactured cigarettes are filtered , and also include reconstituted tobacco and other additives . The term cigarette, as commonly used, refers to a tobacco cigarette, but can apply to similar devices containing other substances, such as cannabis . A cigarette is distinguished from a cigar by its smaller size, use of processed leaf, and paper wrapping, which is normally white, though other colors and flavors are also available. Cigars are typically composed entirely of whole-leaf tobacco. Rates of cigarette smoking vary widely throughout the world and have changed considerably since cigarettes were first widely used in the mid-19th century

Secondary Market
The SECONDARY MARKET, also called the AFTERMARKET, is the financial market in which previously issued financial instruments such as stock , bonds , options , and futures are bought and sold. Another frequent usage of "secondary market" is to refer to loans which are sold by a mortgage bank to investors such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac . The term "secondary market" is also used to refer to the market for any used goods or assets, or an alternative use for an existing product or asset where the customer base is the second market (for example, corn has been traditionally used primarily for food production and feedstock, but a "second" or "third" market has developed for use in ethanol production)

Doll
A DOLL is a model of a human being, often used as a toy for children. Dolls have traditionally been used in magic and religious rituals throughout the world, and traditional dolls made of materials such as clay and wood are found in the Americas, Asia, Africa and Europe. The earliest documented dolls go back to the ancient civilizations of Egypt , Greece and Rome . The use of dolls as toys was documented in Greece around 100 AD. They have been made as crude, rudimentary playthings as well as elaborate art . Modern doll manufacturing has its roots in Germany, going back to the 15th century. With industrialization and new materials such as porcelain and plastic , dolls were increasingly mass-produced. During the 20th century, dolls became increasingly popular as collectibles . 2

Beanie Baby
BEANIE BABIES are a line of stuffed animals (a.k.a. plush toys) created by Ty Warner , the man who founded Ty Inc. (named in November 1991). The toys are unique because each toy is stuffed with plastic pellets ("beans") rather than conventional soft stuffing (PVC and PE ), giving Beanie Babies

a more flexible feel. In a rare interview, the publicity-averse Warner said, "The whole idea was it looked real because it moved." During the later half of the 1990s, the toy emerged as a major fad , and were collected not only as toys but also as a financial investment due to the high resale value of some Beanie Babies

Object (philosophy)
An OBJECT is a technical term in modern philosophy often used in contrast to the term subject . A subject is an observer and an object is a thing observed. For modern philosophers like Descartes , consciousness is a state of cognition that includes the subject—which can never be doubted as only it can be the one who doubts–—and some object(s) that may be considered as not having real or full existence or value independent of the subject who observes it. Metaphysical frameworks also differ in whether they consider objects exist independently of their properties and, if so, in what way. The pragmatist Charles S. Peirce defines the broad notion of an object as anything that we can think or talk about. In a general sense it is any entity : the pyramids , Alpha Centauri
Alpha Centauri
, the number seven , a disbelief in predestination or the fear of cats . In a strict sense it refers to any definite being . A related notion is OBJECTHOOD

Artistic works including music and literature, as well as discoveries, inventions, words, phrases, symbols, and designs can all be protected as intellectual property.
