Wir sammeln sie hier.

In Duo they have Wir sammeln sie hier. for the sentence We collect them here. Can them refer to objects? z.B. I like mugs. I collect them (sie) hier?

Danke

I think so, except for that it's sammeln, not sammein.

Thanks, corrected. I have trouble telling an "i" from an "l" online.

Yes, sie can refer to both persons and objects, although given the context, objects are more likely ;)

I don't think you "sammel" persons. When persons congregate it usually is "wir versammeln uns hier".
