An original souvenir from that day, 70 years ago.

I have been dealing with these fascinating toys for over 30 years. They have appeal across the generations. Toys your parents and grandparents played with as children. They may have even been the first toys you had. Your first memory of a car, bus, taxi or van. Soldiers marching or fighting battles, bands playing or maybea farm, zoo or railway display. They all have their own individual features.
For the collector rare lead figures(from 1890s) and diecasts from the 1930s. For tourists to London exceptionally good quality collectable London buses, black taxis or figures of the guards at Buckingham palace or the Beefeaters from the Tower of London at extremely good prices. I may have a model of your first car or a figure made in England from your country.
For children toys start from £3 each, 4 for 10. Extremely child friendly, actually on my table children all ages can pick up the toys .
Please come along and have a look. If you see something you like which I have in my stock at home that you like, but not in the market, Just contact me and I will bring it down. Relevant sections are in my index above. No obligation to buy.
Lead toy soldiers/figures
Most collectors of the soldiers/figures will have dealt or know me either via Portobello Market or the shows I attend, including Chicago, USA. I probably have the biggest inventory of old collectable toy soldiers/figures you can view in the UK. I have around 2000 figures in the market every weekend and also have lead figures and boxed sets on request which are available to bring to the market if you so desire. I have stock from all the famous manufacturers, Britains, Mignot, Heyde to name but a few.
I also bring a large selection of old Dinky, Corgi and Matchbox cars as well as many
collectable diecast cars/vehicles by Lledo, MOYS and James Bond, Batman related toys.
Many of you will know me as a person who likes people to see what they are buying and expecially enjoy the experience of dealing one to one with my soldiers and diecasts in Portobello market. Until now my website has been an advertisement of my stock without the ability to purchase online but now I sell from the site on request.
