The Toy Collection Exhibit is Back!

Filipino Toy & Hobby Kolektors (FTHK), formerly known as Bahrain Toy Collectors, is a group of toy enthusiasts and hobbyists founded in the Kingdom of Bahrain in September 2016. Established to gather like-minded individuals who share the same interest in high-end collectables, rare finds, vintage and limited-edition toys and action figures, with items valued between BD100 to BD5,000 per piece. Aside from collectors, there are a couple of members who are artists and sculptors who customize toys and dioramas.

The launch of this non-profit group in December 2016 was warmly received, with guest’s estimated at 2,500, coming not just from within the island but from neighboring GCC countries of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Oman. Since then, the group have been invited to join in other exhibition and events to showcase their collection.

The group aims to inspire other toy enthusiasts and hobbyists to showcase their collection, feature their talents and connect members to vendors, artists and sculptors in the toy industry.

Their 1st event was in 2016; the 1st Filipino Toy n’ Hobby Kolektors Exhibit where a crowd turnover of 2500 from visitors both registered and unregistered attended the event.
