Toys are the objects of a child’s imagination and desire. Toys allow child to have fantastic adventures and imaginary friends in a world that is created in the child’s mind. There is a part in all of us that still longs for this freedom of creativity and imagination that accompanies our fondest childhood memories of our toys. This longing makes the collection of vintage toys a desirable hobby to many adults.

Antique toys don’t have to be complicated or made of expensive materials to rekindle this freedom of our childhood. However, because children are often hard on their toys and often pushed past their breaking points, the quantity of quality vintage toys can be limited making the collection of vintage toys in good condition a challenge. Those that are in good condition therefore command a premium price.

Vintage toys come in all types. Pull toys on wheels are one of the more popular types. These toys are powered by their owner. Antique wind-up toys, sometimes called “clockwork toys” are another popular type of antique toy that is collected. Another type of vintage toys are friction toys. These toys are propelled by a spring in the toy that is wound backwards when the toy is moved backwards. Some vintage toys are battery-operated and use the electrical power of household batteries to power the toy.

Building toys such as Lincoln Logs and Erector sets are also popular with toy collectors. And both young and old love LEGOs. Legos are so used and love worldwide that they have almost transcended the category of a toy. Other vintage toys include the yo-yo, the etch-a-sketch, the hula hoop, marbles and the jack-in-the-box.
