The Brick Armory is an online retailer focused on Army toys, specifically, building blocks sets, weapons, vehicles, army bases, and more. We are enthusiasts of military history and want to provide an amazing service for parents looking for great kids toys and for adults who collect and are enthusiastic about building blocks. We provide high quality sets and toys made with a lot of attention to detail, offering 1005 models that are fully compatible with building blocks playsets. Each of our toys is appropriate for kids and for adults and offers a family friendly experience that can be shared with your loved ones.
Our models cover a wide selection of periods from history, as well as original and fantastical designs. We have toys from Ancient Greece, Sparta, Rome, as well as other toys representing ancient eras. In addition to this, we provide a lot of models from World War I, World War II, and the modern era. You will be able to find tanks, planes, soldiers, submarines, ships, and more on our site. Our toys vary a lot in terms of size and complexity. You will be able to find complex models that recreate the details of an original design faithfully and others that are simpler and more appropriate for younger children. There are models with several hundred to several thousand pieces.
Military figures are among the most ancient toys. Figurines have been found in tombs in Egypt and across different cultures. Children and adults would make their own toy soldiers and other military toys throughout the centuries.The first widespread manufactured tin soldiers appeared in the early 18th century in Germany where they were produced via molds using melted tin. The toy became widespread in Europe in the 18th century. However, since the 17th century and earlier on, war has been a popular theme for toys. Some of them were even commonly used to plan battle strategies and to plan or model real-life battle scenarios as they were happening or before ordering an attack. In 1893, the toy became much more available thanks to a shift in manufacturing methods, and since then has never left the shelves. Even today, there are plenty of toys available for kids and adults who want to continue this ancient hobby, shared by kings and generals.
Today, most toy soldiers are made of plastic and are very versatile. There are hundreds of options out there to collect. This brings joy to families, adults, and kids and can be a great way of learning more about history. Toys provide exciting opportunities for play and can offer kids many opportunities to develop their imagination through complex games. While many times kids play with a single toy, soldiers offer the opportunity to coordinate, plan, and move around different pieces.
The collecting hobby has become huge in the past decades. There are magazines, online communities, stores, conventions, and more that are centered around the topic. Some people focus on a specific historical period or type of figure or model, while others collect widely and want to gather a collection that transcends a single era. Some famous collectors include writer George Martin, actor Douglas Fairbanks, and more. There are international shows and gatherings devoted to this hobby.
In addition to a wide popularity of toy soldiers and military vehicles, bases, and more, there is a strong love for brick toys. We believe that combining these two hobbies is a win-win situation for everyone involved. It can help brick toy enthusiasts discover new models and explore new possibilities. It can open a new field for military toys collectors. For kids, of course, the more toys, the better, especially as we hope to provide playsets with a theme that has always been beloved by kids all over the world. Combining brick toys and war toys offers positives for many and creates endless new options for games and modeling. We want to celebrate achievements in this area and the heroism of many people who have fought throughout the ages, as well as encourage learning and discovery through our toys. Besides, we just think they are pretty cool and fun to play with!
