Toys through the ages


For thousands of years, children have had fun playing games with small and seemingly unremarkable items which have evolved into modern day toys. Toys have been found as far back as ancient Egypt, when children would play with ‘marbles’ made from clay and stone. Some of the toys that children play with today have been popular for centuries; spinning tops, yo-yos and cup and ball games were popular in Medieval times and dolls, hobby horses and kites became popular in the 1700s. Our vintage toy collection spans the centuries, bringing together popular favourites and collectors’ items to be cherished by new owners.

Vintage toys from every decade


Nothing creates a sense of nostalgia quite like a vintage toy or vintage bike – and our collection is full of some of the most recognisable toys from the twentieth century and earlier. With each generation comes the new must-have toy. Over time, these toys become a snapshot of the past; of Christmas’ and birthdays gone by. We’ve brought some of the most treasured toys of the past back to life in this lovely collection that has something for everyone. From vintage children’s bikes to beautiful books. Vintage toys look lovely on display on top of vintage cabinets, dressing tables and drawers, or on shelves in a child’s bedroom.

Collectable vintage toys to cherish


Some of the toys in our coveted collection are much sought after items, making them a collector’s dream. If you have little people in your life, these cherished toys can be passed down through the generations, as they have been for years. Rocking horses, board games and pop-up books are typical Victorian children’s toys which make lovely christening and first birthday presents, while more modern toys from the 50s through to the 70s are instantly recognisable by their clean lines and bright colours, and are still a fun way to pass the time. Whatever the occasion, our vintage toys are sure to bring joy to whoever receives them.

Our vintage toy collection also includes antique Kokeshi dolls from Japan, vintage Hornby train sets, and figures by renowned designers Kay Bojesen and Michael Lau. Some of the toys in our collection are meant to be on display, rather than played with every day. You’ll find delicate figurines made from porcelain, ceramic and glass in our range, along with vintage racquets that are as good for hanging on a wall as they are for garden games.
