Welcome to Toys and Models Direct. We are an independent online store selling quality toys and models for Children & Grandchildren, plus collectable models for the more serious collector.
Our guiding principle is to select the type of toy and gift that parents remember with fondness from their own childhood, that Grandparents will want to buy for their grandchildren and most importantly that children will love playing with again and again.
We source quality items from reputable manufacturers and bring them directly to you. We love traditional toys – toys from our own childhood which become family heirlooms and can be passed from sibling to sibling and on down the generations. Models which are built with care and are fun to play with and more detailed die cast models for the serious collector. Mostly 1:32 scale, but with some more specialised collectables available too.
Many of our toys have an educational and developmental aspect, helping to develop your child in the key areas of learning and development - be it hand eye coordination, fine motor skills, key maths STEM, counting or sharing – but most importantly they are fun to play with.
Our toys and models make the perfect gift for any special occasion - be it a christening, Birthday or Christmas. Brands which you remember from your own childhood, like Brio, Sylvanian Families, Thomas & Friends, Britains and Revell together with Welly, Siku and Wiking models – farm and construction - for the more serious collector.
Wooden railway track, engines and buildings from Brio, Big Jigs and Small Foot – perfect for all of your engines, Thomas and Friends. Die Cast Thomas Adventures engines always in stock for your own Sir Topham Hat to add to their collection.
