NEW! July 30, 2011 Toy Sale and Convention Info! Updated: May 13, 2011


The Fisher-Price Collectors Club 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! Click here for details!

Club Members, send back your forms to Jacquie by August 15th, so we know who's coming and how many people to include in the reservations! Click here for more info.

  • 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 decision.

  • 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 your mailboxes!

  • 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 house, fire station, farm, and 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!

  • December 2008: The Winter Gabby Goose Newsletter was mailed out - check it out!

  • August 2008: Our annual convention was held over the weekend of August 22-24, 2008, in East Aurora NY. Click here to see photos! It was a fun time for all!
