E W Baylis & Sons toy soldiers are a perfect gift for Christmas, birthdays or any other occasion. Our toy soldiers make a special gift for anyone interested in military history with each unit displayed in a beautiful red box with gold lettering on the top. The box is cloth lined and padded to both protect and display the figures.
The recipient will delight in receiving something of quality and designed to inspire. Older children and adults can have hours of fun playing with the figures by staging daring raids and re-enacting famous battles. Simple scenery can be improvised by using books and twigs and all of a sudden, your brave red coats are fighting off a Native American war party ambush from the floor of a tree lined ravine!
Other scenery and accessories can be improvised, Christmas cake decorations can provide a mighty stag or snow covered fir trees. A trip to a local railway model shop will provide even more ideas to help you build your mini landscape. The more you put in, the more you get out, but ultimately it will be the imagination that will animate the little army and give them life.
