The history of toy soldiers

Anyone looking to collect quality toy soldiers might first want to consider the rich and varied history of this unique hobby. The umbrella term of ‘toy soldier’ refers to any miniature human figure that represents a combat character and is between 15-105mm tall. While the name ‘toy’ can mislead, soldiers like these have actually long been the companions and hobbies of adults.

Toy soldiers are thought to find their origins back in Ancient Egyptian times when some reports note toy soldiers or similar within Egyptian tombs. At the end of the eighteenth century, German manufacturers turned these original figures into the metal toy soldiers that collectors know and love today. William Britain then transformed even these initial processes with his idea for hollow-casting. And the rest, as they say, is history.
