In the world of toy collectable items anything dating further back
than the 1950s is considered antique. There are examples in museums
and private collections of toys made centuries ago which are very
rare. Most modern day collectors tend to concentrate on the last 150
years when adding to their existing collection.

Amongst the larger toys most collected one finds dolls and their
clothing, teddy bears, trains and other various types of vehicles.
Smaller item collections include Disney figurines, marbles, tea-sets,
baseball and numerous types of specialty cards. Barbie dolls are
popular collector's items and are often inspired by the first Barbie
dolls a little girl may receive. Toys in their original packaging and
clothing are sought after items and normally command high prices.

Teddy bears have always held a special niche in this discipline. From
antique Steiff and Russ bears of a century ago to the popular Winnie
the Pooh and Paddington bears there are many to choose from. All these
bears range in size and are dressed or specially made to commemorate
seasons, festivals and great occasions in history and often only made
in limited editions.

Toy train and other motorized methods of transport collectors go to
great lengths to complete their collections of any particular era or
range of models. Vintage models are quickly snapped up when they come
up for sale on eBay and other world-wide-web sites.

However the smaller items such as marbles and tiny figurines also
have avid collectors. Marbles are made from glass, steel, agate or
clay and often have intricate designs embedded in them. Figurines of
famous Disney, fairy tale or real-life characters are also popular
