Fisher Price is one of the top ten most recognised brands in the world and still makes some of those beloved toys from your own childhood. Their moto rings true today, when they promise to make toys with ‘intrinsic play value, ingenuity, strong construction, good value and action’.

With a toy selection to suit children of all ages, Fisher Price’s licensing agreements have meant that for most of your child’s life there has or will mostly like be a
Fisher Price toy in their toy box.

The Brilliant Basics range suits infants six months and over with bright, hardy toys that inspire imagination and creativity such as the Rock-a-stack stackable rings, the Baby’s First Blocks shape sorter, Stack and Roll Cups and Shake Stack and Roll assortment. In soft, washable plastics their infant range is safe and appealing to little ones.

For toddlers aged one to two years of age, Fisher Price have a range of vehicles and Little People that will delight any child, not to mention a range of walkers and ride-on toys for the newly mobile.

For two year olds Fisher Price starts expanding on the Little People range, with more ‘scenes’ to choose from and they introduce musical instruments and toys to
encourage role-play.

There are some exciting toys in the three-five year old range, that teach children to use technology and interactive games such as the Fun 2 Learn all in one Learning Desk and Learning DJ, and the Kid Tough digital camera. Special licensing agreements let Fisher Price deliver a range of talking, plush Mr Men toys from the popular cartoon.

Kids still love the Doodle Pro range that includes an exciting series of products that expand on the original Magna Doodle toy from many years ago. Plenty of action and adventure toys for boys and lots of dolls and Dora branded games for girls. With old favourites like the View Master and lots of creative crafty toys, Fisher
Price has a lot to offer the four year old.

Fisher Price toys grow with your child, and they ensure that the child engages in active play. With research and development Fisher Price can offer the most up to date and age appropriate toys for small children.

Fisher Price has licensing agreements with your children’s most loved characters such as Dora the Explorer, Elmo and Mr Men, and continues to release quality items in much loved ranges such as Little People, Peek-a-Blocks, View Master and Loving Family.

Fisher Price toys have always been synonymous with high quality, durable, washable fun. Their product ranges have always been popular and continue to capture the imagination of children today with their bright colours and quality materials.

Barbie Dolls–history of the Most Popular Doll Ever

Barbie Dolls–history of the Most Popular Doll Ever

In 1959 the first Barbie doll was shown at the New York toy fair. Billed as “New For ’59,The Barbie Doll:A Shapely Teenage Fashion Model Price .00.” Thus was born the Barbie doll phenomenon which is certainly one of the greatest success stories in toy manufacturing. Prior to Barbie nearly all children’s dolls were child dolls rather than adult figures. Barbie changed all this.

In 1945 Elliot and Ruth Handler formed a partnership with Harold Matson to manufacture picture frames. The two names Matson and Elliot were combined to form the company name Mattel. Elliot used the picture frame wood scrap to make doll house furniture. This was the start of the Handler furniture business.

About this time Ruth noticed that her daughter Barbara and friends preferred to play with adult paper dolls rather than child or baby dolls. The girls preferred a doll which could be their role model when they grew up. Ruth realised that there could be big commercial possibilities in the adult doll market. She discussed the idea with her husband but he felt that it would be too expensive to start making the dolls.

Soon after this Ruth made a trip to Germany and purchased a doll called Lilli. This adult type doll was based on a German comic strip. On returning to the USA she began work to redesign the doll working with a doll clothes designer. The barbie doll was the result and it was named after Ruth’s daughter Barbara. The doll was patented by Mattel in 1958 and introduced in 1959. She was to become one of the most well known and well loved toys ever made.

Barbie soon became a collectors doll and was avidly sought after by adult collectors. From 1959 to 1972 the Barbie doll had seven distinct changes in her appearance and design. These Barbies made up to 1972 are recognised as vintage collectible dolls by their fans and are eagerly sought after. The 1959 Barbie doll in mint condition will sell for thousands of dollars. Some have sold for as much as 00 to ,000 but you can buy them for much less and 00 to 00 is quite common. Later editions fetch proportionately less. Dolls made in the 1969 to 1972 period can often be bought for a few dollars. Garage sales and flea markets are still the source of a few early dolls. About 300,000 of the 1959 Barbie were made and there are undoubtedly many out there still undiscovered.
