Daniel Agnew is one of the acclaimed experts in this industry. Together with Hilary Pauley from the Teddy Bear Museum www.teddybear-museum.co.uk they felt that there was a gap in the market for a get together of those experts, enthusiasts and collectors of dolls, teddy bears and toys. This amazing weekend, the first of which was in November 2016 was the culmination of endless discussions and musings about staging a show based on 200 years of childhood. 

You will find the best of past childhood favourites, from all genres, for sale by the most respected dealers and collectors on Sunday. There is a myriad of seminars with famous names on Saturday and Sunday.
