Joining The Guild

Below are details of the three different entry categories within the British Toymakers Guild. Once you have decided the category that is appropriate for you, please complete the relevant application form and return to the Guild Office. If you require any further information do please call us.


Membership of the British Toymakers Guild is aimed specifically at the craftsperson and toy designer.  In order to be considered for acceptance as a Member we need to see at least two photographs of your work, plus links to your website, where appropriate, and your background. A sample of your work may be requested


Full details of the Guild’s selection criteria are found on the Membership application form.


The Guild is not a legislative body. Therefore before considering an item for selection, the Selection Panel must be satisfied that the item in question conforms to the requirements of EN71 (BS5665) where applicable for toys intended for children below the age of 14.



This recently established level of membership is intended to provide contact between the Guild and the many people who simply love traditional toys.

Friends receive the quarterly journal, the Annual Directory. Friends are welcome to attend and address Committee Meetings and the Annual General Meeting but may not vote.
