Toys for Young Uns (& for me)
Well, I went and ordered some Paper soldiers from Walkerloo. I'm always thinking of what "toy soldiers" will have around for my kids when they get old enough. I had been thinking Armies in Plastic (and probably still will get those someday). Right now we have Schleich & Papo knights and fairy tale creatures scattered about. When I was 9 & 10 I used to trace medieval soldiers out of library books and onto tracing paper. I then mounted them onto card stock and played with them. That led to being given Britains plastic Knights and Saracens and you know the rest... but anyway there's a sort of circularity in buying these. Plus they're beautiful.
