Our showroom is full of a lot more than just toy soldiers i.e. the Worlds Largest Model Battle Scene which houses 15,000 hand cast and hand painted figures, 8 x 4 meters in size, of the Battle at Waterloo completed by just one customer Andre Rudolf and it took him 8 years to finish, we also have the largest range of Lord of the Rings Miniatures, connoisseur chess sets, fairies, fridge magnets, Christmas Decoration and our infamous Irish Heroes, Michael Collins, Padraig Pearse, e.t.c. Coach tours are welcome if pre-booked. Open 7 days a week.
