Allen Hickling has been collecting toy forts and castles for thirty years. He has assembled one of the largest collections in the world, part of which is in a museum in Cyprus.
'Many collectors will know Allen Hickling from toy shows round and about the country, which he has been attending for many decades, and has become the acknowledged master of collecting forts and castles. And of course many toy soldier fans display their collections on toy buildings. Chapters cover the history of toy forts, the Hausser story, the rest of the German makers, Lines Brothers, the rest of the British makers, and various European makers. Plastic collectors will find examples by Britains, Timpo, Kleeware, Starlux, Elastolin and others. But the beauty of this high quality book is in the colour photos, certainly some of the examples shown are probably unique' - Plastic Warrior, Issue 163 Toy Forts & Castles has been praised by James Opie as what we all need and by Norman Joplin as a major breakthrough. It will be useful to collectors, dealers and museum persons, but above all, with its splendid colour photographs, it is a book to enjoy. - R.T.S.
