WELCOME TO OUR OFFICIAL SITE! The Fisher-Price 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 30 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!
JANUARY 1, 2024 UPDATE: Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year 2024 to all Fisher-Price fans! Here's to a great year ahead! The Fisher-Price Collectors Club already has many plans in the works for 2024. We are already planning for our next convention in July and hoping for another banner year! More information will be mailed to club members in our next Gabby Goose newsletter, probably coming in the spring. Many plans are still being finalized so we will let club members know when things are set to go! Cheers to the year 2024!

DECEMBER 17, 2023 UPDATE: The club is very sad to report the passing of long-time member Jacquie Hamblin. Jacquie was the heart and soul of the club for many years, serving as president, membership coordinator, Gabby Goose editor plus so many other duties! She kept us going during some lean times, and helped guide the club to grow and thrive. Jacquie lived a long life with a loving family at her side, and spent much time volunteering, doing hobbies, and participating in charitable activities. Jacquie's family wrote a beautiful tribute which can be read here.

DECEMBER 16, 2023 UPDATE: The club is continuing to plan for Convention 2024! The convention is traditionally held during the last full weekend of July, which will make the dates Friday July 26th and Saturday July 27th, 2024.

Contact Info:

The club's email is: fpclub@att.net

NOTE: Since the club is run by volunteers, sometimes it takes awhile to answer emails. (If we recognize your email as a club member, you will definitely get priority!). Also the email account gets a lot of spam, so it's very easy to miss an email. If you have a toy-related question (not specifically club-related), you could always post in one of the Facebook groups.

NOTE ABOUT SELLING REQUESTS: The club often receives emails from people looking to sell their Fisher-Price toys (usually in played-with condition, or Toyfest toys) in a large lot to a collector. At this time, due to covid and lack of manpower, the club does not do any buying or selling over the internet. If you have toys to sell, best place to get views is to post in one of the Facebook sales groups, or use Ebay. One Facebook group to post sales is "Fisher-Price Toys 4 Sales Only" as many club members and collectors hang out there (that Facebook group is not officially run by the club). Another great group for listing toys is Vintage PRE 1989 Fisher Price Little People buy/ sell/ trade. Good luck with your selling!



We love our Fisher-Price Toys!
