Goodies Old Toys

Finally my weekend arrived after 5 days in Hamburg and I can go to "Goodies Old Toys" to meet Wolfgang. His shop is located in another city or town, Schenefeld, not far from my hotel which is about 15km away. I took a taxi to the shop because I will only collect the rental car 2 days later.

This crate of old toys in the shop window has attracted my attention somehow.

As I enter the shop, I saw a show case filled with little soldiers and cowboys. I hope I am not in the wrong place. Where are the cars? Come on in and here's my little tour in Goodies Old Toys.

I introduced myself to Wolfgang and roam around the shop looking at stuff which might interest me. All cars are displayed in glass cabinet according to brands. I will show you pictures taken some of the cabinets. Enjoy.

Mercedes-Benz by Gama. I have a few Gama but I didn't have any Gama Mercedes yet. I simply love old Benz with a huge grill.

Gama and some mix of Solido

Different models of Volkswagen from Gama

A cabinet full of Corgi models.

Dinky and Thunderbird

Promo car from the 50s & 60s made by Volkswagen according to Wolfgang. They are really nice but they are dear for my budget.

Volkswagen Beetle Promo cars

What attracted me most are the wide selection of old Siku. These lot are mainly from the 80s.

I been looking at this lot the longest as the 60s and 70s Siku are simply charming toys.

Some Siku trucks and tractors. Just when I was admiring at the Siku, Wolfgang called out for me as he had more stuff to show me. He pushed a "bakery" trolley out and it was stacked with layers of toy cars. I think there should 10 or 12 trays full of toy cars. I picked some cars from the trays as these lot were more relevant for me. I found myself some Playart, Conrad, Mini Dinky, Marx etc. Here are some of the lots. I have more pictures but I don't wanna make this post too lengthy.

There are a few trays of Siku and I pick a few pieces from this lot.

Husky lot. Did you realize that Wolfgang has a fetish for 007 Aston Martin DB5? I didn't buy it although I really wanted it. I bought 2 Husky from this lot as well.

I had a Ford Transit already but I don't mind to have another. I am not really into carded piece actually so I have to pass it. Did you spot Batman's ride here?

Husky VW Bettle and Citroen DS Wagon.

Didn't expect to see Tomica here.

There's more! I could spend whole day in this place but Wolfgang need to run for an appointment. 2 hours is simply not enough for me so I will need to see Wolfgang next time I visit Germany. You want to know the damage done to my wallet? I got a box full of toy cars when I left the shop. I don't felt painful to pay for the toy cars as I get what I need but it was painful to pay for the taxi fare. It's a fruitful trip for me and anyone who visit Hamburg should consider to visit Goodies Old Toys in Schenefeld. This is their website if you want to know more about the shop. www.oldtoys.de
