Welcome to Little
This site is all about my favorite childhood toys--Johnny West
and The Best of the West! When my parents moved our family down to Florida
from Canada in 1969, I was unable to bring my whole collection of Johnny West
stuff. Parting with my favorite toys was hard. Once in Florida and
through the years, I had many other things to worry about. Now that I'm
older, I found I was longing for that connection to my youth. It all
started when my husband of 28 years got me a Johnny West doll and the Covered
Wagon with the wheeled horse for Christmas in 2012. It's his fault :)
...I'm hooked again. I have managed to get back almost all the pieces I had when
I was a kid, and then some. I used to repaint horses (Breyers mostly) but
did some Marx horses, and find that I enjoyed doing that; so I have started
doing it again. Pictures will be posted as they are complete.
Enjoy your visit here.
I have recently started painting Marx recast/vintage heads. Below is a
sampling--I'll put a page up soon.
Some pictures of part of my collection back in the mid to late
My brother, Billy, made props for me back then; and
he's made more for my Johnny West clan making
1:6 scale props. The tack was made by
me back in the 70's!
Other Stuff that I used to do:
Stuff I still do (on occasion):
Thanks for visiting--hope to see you back again soon!
