Hello Club Members! The Fisher-Price Collectors Club will be holding our next annual convention on Friday July 28th and Saturday July 29th, 2023! All events will take place in East Aurora NY, or in the immediate area. More details will be posted as plans get finalized, so watch this page! Club members will also get the finalized schedule in the spring issue of the Gabby Goose, which will be mailed out to all member before the convention. The Newsletter will have instructions and invitations to the annual dinner for club members and their guests who want to attend. Some of the events listed here are for club members only. The sale is open to everyone.

WHEN: Friday July 28th and Saturday July 29th, 2023

WHERE: All events will be in the East Aurora NY area. See our page about East Aurora to get an idea of where it is, local hotels, and what is in the area.

OVERVIEW: The convention is held over 2 days. On Friday, we usually have a social hour, annual dinner, possibly other events for club members. Saturday we hold the annual sale (open to everyone).

FRIDAY MORNING (JULY 28th): The club hoped to plan a gathering this morning, but plans fell through. We hope to try again and succeed next year! Though one thing many club members traditionally do is shop at the Fisher-Price factory store on Friday morning/early afternoon before the social hour. Though most of the toys for sale are new, sometimes there is cool clothing or vintage-toy-themed memorabilia for sale.

SOCIAL HOUR (FRIDAY JULY 28th): The social hour is for club members and their guests and takes place on Friday afternoon. The place is the Masonic Lodge at 645 Main Street from 2:30 to 3:30. Come and chat! Light refreshments are planned to be served. Social Hour ends promptly at 3:30 so we can hold the annual board meeting.

ANNUAL DINNER (FRIDAY JULY 28th): The annual dinner for club members and their guests will be held on Friday evening July 28th, starting around 6:00 pm and usually lasting until 8:30 - 9:00 pm. Reservations are required to attend the dinner and it's $25 a person. Club members will be mailed invitations to the dinner in the June Gabby Goose newsletter, which is being mailed out the week of June 20th. Payment can be snail-mailed, or use Paypal or Zelle. The location is the same as the prior years, Bravo Cafe in nearby Elma NY, at 5781 Seneca Street (not far from where Transit Street meets Rt 400). Dress is casual/whatever you like - some people dress up, while others wear their favorite Fisher-Price t-shirt! We have door prizes, Fisher-Price games and contests, plus a speaker talking about their favorite Fisher-Price toys! Dinner will be served buffet-style with the usual choices of meat (usually one is chicken), potatoes, vegetables, bread and dessert, plus one vegetarian choice as well. Dessert will be Fisher-Price themed cupcakes this year. If anyone wants alcoholic beverages, people can buy their own drinks at Bravo's cash bar. The dinner is not to be missed, we always have a blast gabbing the evening away talking about our collections and every else under the sun! There is a lot of interest in attending this year and space is limited, so get your reservations in early! Our amazing club president Audrey always does an AWESOME job hosting the event!!!

ANNUAL TOY SALE (OPEN TO EVERYONE!) SATURDAY JULY 29th: The Fisher-Price Collectors Club's annual Toy Sale (nicknamed "Toys From the Attic") will be held on Saturday July 29th, 2023 rain or shine!
