In Germany you can find the largest collection of penguins. While not native, this flight-less bird has found a home in the heart of Ms. Birgit Berends. She now has over 5000 different penguin items. She started her collection in 1990. Her most favorite is Alfred, her adopted real life penguin.

This is really dependent on what item? I found Forbes had the largest toy soldier collection. Wendy Suen has the worldest largest snow globe collection at 1888. This is actually really interesting given what people will collect anything from records, cars, typewriters all kinds of different items. Guinness books can give you an accurate reading on anything.
