Preview 14. International Toy Soldier Meeting


For the 14th time and now for 5 years in Friedberg the biggest fair in Spring for toy soldier collectors in Germany takes place on the 20th of May 2006. As the organizers Ulli Raue and Sebastian Frank told us, the ballroom is already fully booked and therefore parts of the foyer will be used for the first time. There you will find the info-book and figures table of the Figures Journal. There you can find out about the advantages of a membership and will be able to register as a starter or premium member. Every new member who signs in will get a nice figure as their personal gift.

Again this year traders and visitors from Germany, Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy, Sweden and the United States will be represented. On Friday, the 19th of May 2006 the well known and loved room trading will take place and in the evening - a tradition as well - a common dinner in a separate room beside the hotels restaurant. Thereafter friends and clients of the Figures Journal will have a social gathering to discuss the past and the future. We hope that many collectors will join us and we will receive useful hints and/or constructive criticism.

On Saturday, the 20th of May traders can start to put up their tables at 8am and the fair will be open for visitors from 10am. Ulli Raue will show again some very rare items. What these will be, we couldn't find out.

A few tables in the foyer are left and can be booked by phone 04503 72887, by fax 04503 700663 or via email

Member , 26.04.2007: I hope to attend the gathering on May 19/20. I have been a collector since 1965 when I lived in Bad Tolz . A close friend gave me his collection issues to him in 1938. I was so stunned to see the original soldiers on parade, with band, horses, banners, and the entire senior command reviewing the troops. I look forward to being at the convention. Marion

Member , 19.07.2007: I had hoped to aattend the May gathering, but was detained in Belguim on business. I have been a collector since 1964 when I lived in Bsd Tolz. A close friend there gave me his collection that had been issued to him in 1939. I was amazed to see the original soldiers on parade with band, horse and rider, banners, and the entire senior command reviewing the troops. I look forward to seeing you next year.
