Amit Bera's solution is in the right direction. Depending on what type of Collection it is Mage_Eav_Model_Entity_Collection_Abstract or Mage_Core_Model_Resource_Db_Collection_Abstract that might not work though, and you can only add an object of the class you specified when you initialised the collection with ($this->_init('customer/customer'); in the _construct method for example).

Try this:

$first = Mage::getModel('amit/order')



Varien_Data_Collection::addItem adds an item at the end of the collection, but because the collection hasn't been loaded yet at that point - because of lazy loading - it's index will be at the beginning of the array.


Create a new Varien object, and add with your current collection. For example

$data = array(
        'id' => 0,
        'firstname' => 'firstname',
        'lastname' => 'lastname',
        'gender' => 'Male',
        'created_at' => '2014-04-02 12:22:00'
    $obj = new Varien_Object($data);
