Old LIDO plastic toy soldiers.

These "guys" may be as old as me. I remember playing with them in the 1950s when they were sold in bags for 98 cents. My older brother must have gotten them. I picked up a few and the only problem is that they don't stand on my felt table cover.


  1. Some of my favourite figures of all time! Love the Arabs/FFL too.


  2. I had the Lido knights, cowboys and Indians, Civil War, Revolutionary War, French Foreign Legion, Arabs, and GI's. Never saw any Germans and Japs or knew they existed until I was an adult. I always liked them even if they were a bit cartoony.
