is a group of people who all share a love for the toys
made by the Fisher-Price company. The group is quite
diverse in what we collect, as there are so many
different lines of toys to enjoy! Far and away, the most
collected line of toys by our members are the
classic Little People/Play Family toys,
but there are many others to enjoy too -
the vintage wooden pull toys; the
wind-up music boxes; dollhouses and action figures;
plus so much more!
It's hard to put into words
exactly why Fisher-Price
toys have such timeless
charm to many of us. Perhaps it's the bright colors
and smiles. Maybe it's the cute
miniature versions of society. Perhaps it's reasons
too numerous to list!
Either way, Fisher-Price truly does have the power to
brighten a rainy day.
Club Members, mark your calendars! Our 2011 Convention is scheduled
for Saturday, July 30, 2011!

June 2009: Sad news to report - The Fisher-Price
Collectors Club will not be having an
Antique Toy Show and Sale this
year. Like the two frowning Little People shown here, we aren't
happy about it, but alas there were many reasons for this
May 2009: More sad news to report -
the Toytown Museum on
Girard Steet in East Aurora has
closed, and it appears this is permanent. They may be looking for
another location, but it remains to be seen what happens next.
A huge loss to toy collectors everywhere.
May 2009: The Spring Gabby Goose newsletter was mailed - collectors, check
March 2009: Good news!! In celebration of the 50th
anniversary of the Little People, Fisher-Price has produced
4 new commemorative toys, in a retro style in remembrance of
the classic Little People. They are called the "Little People
Play 'n Go", and the 4 new toys are a
school house. The new toys have a base made
of light-weight plastic and tin, with plastic Little People and some accessories.
Sadly the Little People figures are large and chunky, but
alas, that's how things are made in current times for safety reasons.
Nice to see the vintage Little People being remembered today!
