WELCOME TO OUR OFFICIAL SITE!
The Fisher-Price Collectors Club is a registered non-profit organization with the purpose to preserve and
collect Fisher-Price toys, and
to bring together the people who enjoy them.
The club first formed in 1993 by our founder Jeanne, and has been together for over 20 years.
The club has had hundreds of members through the years, and has permission from Fisher-Price
to use their name. Our club is unique in that we don't just exist as an online entity - we
have a yearly convention where we get together to meet in person and socialize; and also have
a sale to buy, sell and trade our favorite toys!
We are a dues-paying club - the dues are used to produce our newsletters, pay for expenses
for the convention, and to support various children's charities and activities in which we are involved.
If you have ever seen Brad Cassity's book
, yes that's our club mentioned in there!
Many photos in that book were from our club member's private collections.
Who's in the club?
Our club members are primarily from the USA, with some Canadian and international
members as well. By far and away, the favorite toys collected by our club members are the classic Fisher-Price
Play Family/Little People sets and figures. These are the iconic ones made from the mid 1960's until 1989,
and have quite a large loyal following! The club also has many members
who collect older and vintage wooden toys made by Fisher-Price. But we have members who collect other toys as well:
musical wind-up toys; wooden puzzles;
Adventure People; dolls; dollhouse figures and pieces; Great Adventures; Husky Helpers - you name it!
The club also has
some members who collect and specialize in the newer (1990 and later) Little People, so we aren't just for vintage collectors!
If you are a die-hard collector or just have a few select favorites, the club welcomes anyone who
enjoys Fisher-Price toys!
So what do we collect? See the slideshow to view photos taken by
club members, as they share some of their favorite sets and toys
from their collections. Click here

Some very sad news to report. The Fisher-Price Collectors Club was informed by his family that author Brad
Cassity has passed away, in mid January 2015. Brad wrote the very popular "yellow" Fisher-Price book,

. Many club members knew him well, and helped contribute photos to his wonderful book.
The club sends their condolences to his family in this difficult time.

If anyone has a young daughter ages 3 - 6 who likes picture books, there is a new one just published that has
a small connection to a classic Fisher-Price toy! In the book Emeraldalicious by Victoria Kann, the main character
is a young girl who finds her favorite woods has been turned into a garbage dump. With some magic, she reuses many
of the items in new ways to promote the idea of recycling. If you look closely in the background when she is surrounded
by garbage, there is a classic Fisher-Price chatter phone! The phone appears on 3 different pages. Takes some eagle eyes
