Schoenhut Collectors' Club

The Schoenhut Collectors' Club
promotes the collecting, preservation, and research of the
dolls, toys, and games produced by the
A. Schoenhut Co.
and its successor companies.

Our annual convention, last year held in Spencer NC, Oct 21 and 22, 2016, was a great success.  We had over 97 in attendance.  Lots of Schoenhut doll and toys were bought and sold.  Our speakers were great.  Pictures from the convention are in our Dec 2016 Magazine.


This Year's Convention was in Lancaster PA, Oct 12, 13, and 14, 2017.  Andy Yaffee was our host.  He showed us his Humpty Dumpty circus collection, which is probably the best collection of  early style Schoenhut circus pieces you will ever see. We'll have pictures of the convention in the December Magazine and on the Club's Website soon.

Visiting this site but not a club member?  Welcome - we hope you are now or want to be an antique toy or doll collector especially of those very fine wooden ones made by the Schoenhut toy company.  Join us so you can have access to the best Humpty Dumpty circus identification guide plus descriptions and pictures of most of Schoenhut's products. 

As a member, you will also have access to the Club's archives of all of its past Newsletters and Magazines back to the 1970s with their great articles and photographs of Schoenhut products.

The world's best experts on these dolls and toys contribute to this Website.  We publish, four times a year, a very high quality, full color magazine.

Some of our recent Magazines

Each 20-page, full color magazine is mailed to Club members in a poly envelope by first class US mail,  four times a year - in March, June, September, and December

Members of the Schoenhut family of toy makers immigrated to the United States in the1860s from Germany.  Albert Schoenhut started the company in 1872 in Philadelphia PA making toy pianos that he had invented.

The Humpty Dumpty circus

The Humpty Dumpty circus was produced by Schoenhut in various styles between 1903 and 1935.  Collectors construct their own circus displays from the many animals, actors, and accessories.  Since this toy line was very popular in its day, there are still many surviving pieces. Club members have access to a comprehensive and up-to-date Identification Guide to the Humpty Dumpty circus.
