me with your questions about old toys and I will try to help. I can
almost never identify a toy without a photograph. We are pretty good
with toys made before 1950 but not very good with modern toys.
Generally, if it has plastic parts, we probably won't know it.
Buying: We do buy old toys,
particularly wooden ones and especially circus toys. They should be in
or better condition and complete. Some very rare and desirable toys we
will buy even if not complete.
Articles: If you want to write
an article for this Web site, email me with your idea and I will advise
you how to proceed. We have published many articles by toy
collectors and researchers and encourage you to write. It will
enhance your collecting experience.
About me: I am the Editor of
the Schoenhut Collectors Club Newsletter and a collector of the Schoenhut
Humpty Dumpty circus. I am a retired computer engineer and my wife
Judy is a retired teacher.
Visits: If you are ever in the
Charleston, South Carolina area and want to see my collection or the toys
I have for sale, contact me.
Note: I cannot identify your old toys from descriptions - I'll need for you to
email me photos.
