About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

T is for The Toy Project

One item missing from the Peter Evans Plunder post this morning was the below bag. Peter has been to visit the shop in London, making a purchase while he was there and it's a good excuse to plug a [toy related] worthy cause again!

It’s funny to see the Toy Boarders coming to the secondary market, but I guess it's a few years since they appeared here on a 'New Production News' tag! Along with a generic 'China Toy' mechanic around 35mm, a slight scale difference, but they are both civilians!

Both sides of the header-card, I'll post the relevant URL's again at the end as useable hot-links.

For those who missed the previous post The Toy Project is a charity that accepts donations from private individuals and works with the Industry, using various models of fund-raising to generate money and or Toys for children in need. They recently worked with the Grenfell Tower children - for instance.

Raising money for specific projects by selling either the second-hand donations like these, or new production donations from the industry, they also channel some of the industry donations straight to their projects, if suitable while more conventions fund raising like sponsorship, or coffee mornings are encouraged.

An A5 Flyer (also printable at A4 &etc.) was also present on the front desk at the show.
