Everyone loves toys and models – objects of childhood amusement and Christmas or birthday aspirations can be revisited and savoured in later life in the tangible nostalgic form and pleasant reverie that is collecting.
Our specialist Toy and Model auctions and selected themed Collective auctions have proved to be eminently popular events, both online and in our Darwin saleroom; attracting good prices for the vendors and providing successful bidders with a diverse and fascinating range of good quality products of all vintages. Recent sales have included traditional favourites like Diecast goods from such as Corgi and Dinky, Hornby and Graham Farish Model Railways, Mamod and Wilesco Steam engines, Airfix and Frog Plastic aeroplane, tank and ship kits, Triang Pedal-cars and Scalextric Slot-cars, Steiff Teddy Bears and Victorian Bisque-headed Dolls; as well as the more modern film and television licensed products such as Star Wars and Star Trek figures alongside popular Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter themed products. Viewing is available on the two days before the auction if you would like to inspect anything in particular or just pop along to be inspired!
Halls Toys and Models department is managed by specialist Joseph Trinder, with free valuations available every Monday from 10:00am to 1:00pm.
