Back to Basics Toys in the News
Thinking about your childhood often evokes memories of playing with your favorite toys. From action figures to dolls, it's likely that such items provided endless fun and happiness. You would've thought that your toys were priceless, but auction house Sotheby's recently released what most believe to be the largest and most expensive toy collection in the world.
According to BBC, compiling all of the vintage train sets and toy soldiers took over 50 years. The owner of the collection, Jerry Greene, wants the collection to be sold as a whole and not be broken into individual pieces.
The 35,000 piece toy collection, which was housed in the basement of the owner's Philadelphia home, is valued to be in the tens of millions of dollars, with some of the items dating back to the 1850s.
With many delicate pieces and a price tag up to the millions, these toys are definitely not suitable for playtime. Those looking for much more reasonable play items should look for a Back to Basics Toys Promotion Code, a DouglasCuddleToy.com Promo Code, or an FAO Schwarz Discount Code.
