Boys' Vintage Toys

Beautiful toys from yesteryear

About Me

My name is Michael Brownhill ,54 years young and love boys' old toys !
I may be past the bloom of youth , but I still love playing with toy boats and yachts , running from one side of the boating pool to another.
I live in Lymm with my family . I have a lovely wife Julie and three kids who are tolerable , Thomas 31 , Gemma 28 and Christopher 22.
I have an extensive collection of boats mainly from the sixties and seventies ,and also have a few planes and cars , but toy boats are my favourite.
I am no expert on vintage toys (or anything else for that matter!), but I have a child like enthusiasm for the toys of my childhood.
If you would like to buy any of the toys featured on this site , or would just like a chat , then give me a call.
If you are in the United Kingdom and you are ringing from an number beginning with 01 or 02 then e-mail me with a time to call you, ( Any day from about 3pm onwards as I work as a postman) as I can call you for no charge.
If there is no answer , it may be because we have had a very high number of junk calls , and I have we have decided not to pick up. Please leave a message , and I will get back to you straight away.
