There is certainly a very clear distinction that can be made between collectibles and toys. While toys are made primarily to be played with by children, collectibles are created for adults to display and enjoy, just like the many choices available here. Of course, toys can eventually become collectibles. Particularly antique toys, due to their age and rarity. But by the time toys have matured into their collectible stage, any interest by children has sufficiently waned.
For most collectibles we recommend dusting with a soft cloth, a small makeup brush, or using spray designed for computer keyboards, which emits puffs of air to remove dust particles from small spaces.
Porcelain items may be cleaned with a mild soap-and-water solution, then rinsed in clear water and dried by hand. However, if they are decorated with simulated jewels, fabric or leather, they should be hand dusted only.
Limited-edition collector plates are for display purposes only. They should never be used for serving food because of the rare metallic pigments fired into the plates for color fidelity.
Never wash any of your fine collectibles in a dishwasher. Avoid placing your collectibles in direct sunlight for long periods of time, and always handle them with care.
