Walk from building to building and be amazed at the quality and range of treasures available. Our exhibitors feature the unusual, the rare, and the desirable in every collectible toy and doll category. The most precious highlights in collections all over the country have been found at this show.
Toy collecting is not about barter and price and profit; it is about a fascination of the infinite items in the hobby. It is about an appreciation of the craftsmanship, the rarity, the exquisite detailing, the history of each playful toy. Toys are a reflection of the era they represent, a miniature interpretation of their world. Toys are a memorabilia of the
past preserved for the future.
Collectors search for treasures remembered from their childhood, for items their parents enjoyed as children, and for toys too charming to pass by. Playthings made of cast iron, pressed steel, tin, die cast, wood, wind-ups, batteryops, plastic, paper, china, bisque, and glass are all collectible. Equally unique and desirable are Star Wars items, Marvel comic characters, Action Figures, Robots, Disney, automotives, planes, rockets, western, Matchbox, monsters, playsets, and vintage Christmas and Halloween. We have it all.
