"When I see them all on parade, I get a reminiscent joy. I get as enthused as I did when I saw them in the toy stores as a child."
-Malcolm Forbes

The days of toy soldier shops in most cities are over. Sadly, these always few but uniquely situated purveyors of delight are gone - except on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. You will find in The Toy Soldier Shop of Washington, D.C., several thousand figures displayed in antique showcases. Toy soldier books, wooden castles and a remarkable selection of original WWI posters round out the offerings therein.

Neil Rhodes' shop occupies the first floor of a beautifully restored double parlor row house and he's there most every Saturday, holding toy soldier court and creating his own contemporary toy soldiers. Neil's painting skills and attention to detail are unsurpassed. Repairs, conversions or original commissions are eagerly and exquisitely rendered. Read more about Neil's inventory and services here
