|HELLO CLUB MEMBERS AND ALL FISHER-PRICE FANS!! What an amazing weekend! The Fisher-Price
Collectors Club held our annual convention on Friday July 29th and Saturday July 30, 2022. We had a great turnout!
The annual dinner had TWICE as many people as last year, and the sale went very well! We had many Fisher-Price
fans lined up right at opening, ready to shop for their favorite toys! The dinner had a very special guest
speaker (poet and author from Canada), plus Fisher-Price themed games (guessing games plus "search and find" puzzles),
and really good food from Bravo Cafe in Elma NY. We also picked up many new members recently (WELCOME ABOARD!)
The Fisher-Price Collectors Club is
already looking forwards to next year! We are planning to have our convention and sale in July 2023.
The exact dates for next year have not been confirmed yet (our sale is part of a larger
event run by the East Aurora Chamber of Commerce) and we are waiting for them to announce their 2023 schedule. But yes,
watch this website and our Facebook page for updates as they come!

WELCOME TO OUR OFFICIAL SITE!
Collectors Club is a group of people who enjoy collecting the wonderful toys
made by the Fisher-Price toy company. We have been together for well over 25 years, first forming in 1993.
The club is a registered non-profit organization 501(c)(3)with the purpose to
preserve and collect Fisher-Price toys, and to bring together the people who enjoy them.
Our club is unique in that we don't just exist as an online entity - we have a yearly
convention where we get together to meet in person and socialize; and also have a sale to buy,
sell and trade our favorite toys! If you have ever seen Brad Cassity's book Fisher-Price Toys,
yes that's our club mentioned in there, and many photos in that book were from our club member's
private collections. Check out our website and see what we do!
NOVEMBER 27, 2022 UPDATE: After our wonderful convention in July, the club has been in
our usual mode for this time of year, which is mainly online chatting! Fisher-Price fans are welcomed
to join any of the facebook groups where collectors chat. The club definitely
is planning our next convention for July 2023, and we will update this page once the dates are set!
JULY 24, 2022 UPDATE: OK collectors, HERE WE GO! Club members, see our updated
Convention 2022 Page for the schedule of events! We have the
social hour and annual dinner on Friday July 29th (for club members and their guests),
then the sale on Saturday July 30th, open to EVERYONE!! (For more information on the sale,
see our Toy Sale Page). However you get to East Aurora - whether
you jump in your Nifty Station Wagon, or catch the next FunJet at your local airport - we welcome all
Fisher-Price fans to come to East Aurora, NY!

APRIL 25, 2021 UPDATE:
WE ARE HAVING OUR SALE AND DINNER!!! See posts above for more info!
This update originally was a sad depressing post about how New York is not lifting Covid restrictions, and
will keep everything closed and us all masked in perpetuity. As of late April, few restrictions had
been lifted so we were going to cancel our sale and dinner yet again. BUT FINALLY in May enough restrictions were
lifted so the club's dinner, sale and even the Chamber of Commerce's Street and Sidewalk Sale IS ON!
The sale will be on Saturday July 24th at the Blazing Star Masonic Lodge in East Aurora NY from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
JANUARY 23, 2021 UPDATE:
Hello club members and all Fisher-Price fans! Many of you have asked about membership for the 2020-2021
year. Due to the current covid situation, we extended all current
memberships for another year while we wait until the world gets in a better place, and we can get together again.
The good news is the most recent Gabby Goose newsletter was mailed out in December 2020, so all 2020 club members
should have received it! Many thanks to Kara for being our editor for this edition! No idea yet on whether the club
will get together in the summer of 2021.
While we wait for the world to heal, please join us in the Fisher-Price
Facebook Groups so we can keep on collecting, chatting and staying in touch!
JANUARY 1st, 2021 UPDATE:
Happy New Year from the Fisher-Price Collectors Club! The Little People celebrate as the Teaching Clock
strikes midnight! We can only hope for a better year ahead!
NOVEMBER 2020 UPDATE:
Due to our cancelled 2020 convention and the ongoing covid situation,
the club will be "on pause" for now while we wait it out. All current members had their membership extended for
another full year (covering the 2020-2021 year). The Gabby Goose newsletter is also on pause, so don't worry
if you haven't received one in awhile! All current club members were mailed an envelope in October explaining
the membership extension.
But we aren't just twiddling our thumbs, as many of our collectors have been very busy with their collections
during their stay-at-home time!
Please join us in our Facebook Groups to see people's displays, see everyone's
new toy finds, and generally just chat about Fisher-Price and stay in touch!
MAY 30, 2020 UPDATE: We are sad to report that the club's
July 2020 Convention and Sale has been cancelled, which was expected.
Due to Covid restrictions in New York, no large gatherings are
permitted indefinitely in the state. The Fisher-Price Collectors Club's annual sale is part of a larger event, the
East Aurora Chamber of Commerce's Street and Sidewalk Sale, which has been cancelled.
As a result, the club is not getting together in 2020 (no dinner, no sale, no nothing).
We look forwards to 2021, hoping the situaiton will have improved by then. Please join us chatting in our
Facebook Groups so we can keep collecting, chatting and stay in touch!
MAY 10, 2020 UPDATE:
With the uncertain times going on right now, The Fisher-Price Collectors Club's annual show and sale
is still awaiting word on what to do this summer. The dates are July 24-25, 2020 in East Aurora NY.
The sale is part of the East Aurora Chamber of Commerce's Street and Sidewalk sale, and they are
awaiting decisions by the State of NY. Please check back on to this site for updates as they come.
February 17, 2020 UPDATE:
Collectors, mark your calendars! The date is set - the Fisher-Price Collector Club's next annual Toy Show and Sale is
Saturday July 25, 2020 in East Aurora NY! The times are 9:00am to 2:30 pm. The location is the Blazing
Star Masonic Lodge at 645 Main Street. This is the same location for the sale as the prior few years. More information will be
mailed to club members as the time gets closer. For more details, see our updated
Toy Sale Page!.
December 22, 2019 UPDATE:
Collectors, check your mailboxes! The November 2019 and December 2019 issues of the Gabby Goose
newsletter were mailed out this week! The November issue is all about our July 2019 convention.
The December issue is very special, as it showcases just about every ornament Fisher-Price made for
Christmas! And in full color as well! It shows the Hallmark ornaments, Department 56 ornaments, and
even some made by Fisher-Price for their employees. Many thanks to our wonderful editor and those
who helped her put together such a unique and well-researched newsletter! Visit our updated
Gabby Goose Newsletter Page for more info about the newsletters.
