Toys and models

Catering to adult whims and nostalgia for the old days, auctions of Toys and Models provide a wealth of boat and aeroplane models, electric trains and miniature cars – particularly Dinky toys: decidedly the Rolls-Royces of small collectors' cars.

With board games and games of chance, these Drouot online sales of Toys and Models also provide enthusiasts with antique chess and domino sets, packs of cards, snakes and ladders games and automata, those luxury toys for overgrown children.

Auctions of porcelain dolls (the most popular being antique "Jumeau" babies with closed mouths and "Bru" babies) hold delights for collectors, alongside the celebrated teddy bears made by Steiff.

Did you know ? The name Teddy Bear comes from the 26th US president, Theodore Roosevelt, who was nicknamed "Teddy". One day he came home empty-handed from a bear hunt, and his entourage decided to tie a bear cub to a tree so that he could shoot it. Deeply shocked, Roosevelt let the animal go. Two Russian emigrants immortalised the story by creating a cuddly toy bear in 1902, naming it "Teddy". 

NB: Tin soldiers are found in with historic mementos in the Arms, Hunting and Military Mementoes category
