- Camberwell Store Updates
A quick visual tour of our cabinets at the Camberwell Antique Centre, Cookson Street Camberwell, Victoria. While restocking some of the cabinets today we collected photos of the cabinets and the huge range of old and recent toys. Cars, Boats, Planes, Dolls, Teddies, Trains in O and OO/HO, 1:32 Figures from Airfix, Timpo and Britains, and lots more.
New items featured this month include:
- a Gerry Gee Junior ventriloquists doll, working with original clothes and the “Tarax Club” badge.
- a small range of Lego Dimensions figures as new in box
- a selection of recent Hornby rolling stock, mint boxed, circa 2010
- a selection of older Hornby O Guage rolling stock, boxed and loose circa 1950
- Suspending Toy Repair Services
A belated update to our toy repair services.
Antique Toy World offers repair services through our RecoverToy business.
The volume of orders have overwhelmed our toy repair specialists. We are struggling to complete the existing orders and are suspending toy repair services until further notice.
Stock listings will continue to be updated on this website and at our market stores. Check our site details for Camberwell, Scoresby, and Yarra Glen locations.
Due to additional pressure with some family issues we have had to suspend all new toy repair tasks. We will update the website at a later date, although at this time we do not expect that to be any earlier than June 2022 and probably longer. Please monitor our website for updates.
We do not have any experience with anyone else offering a commercial repair service and cannot recommend another toy repairer for you. There are lots of high quality non-professionals who do their own models for the love of the toys. We are not aware of any that offer a commercial repair service. We suggest you use a locality search for a service close to you or enquire at local hobby shops.
Thankyou for your interest in Antique Toy World and RecoverToy. We will complete your existing toy repair order as time permits and we thank you for your patience.
