After some long negotiations, C&S Collectables Direct have managed to secure the rights to the well known brand name Minikins. Minikins were originally designed by the great William Harper for a range of porcelain miniatures produced by Wade in the 1950's 60's. Most Wade collectors will recognise the name Minikins and C&S will be marketing the new range beginning with the Phoenix.


The new range is similar in design and quality to your existing Whimsie collections but will carry the Minikins name. After the closing of the Wade factory, we feel collectors were left with a void in their collecting lives, and so we hope our loyal fans will embrace the new range of Minikins. They will complement and sit alongside your existing collections, so join us in this new chapter of collecting.


The first of the new Minikins, the Phoenix is now sold out. Look out for further Phoenix Minikins to be released shortly.


Rising from the ashes of the Wade Collectors Club. The first issue was available in three colours, hand painted, orange and an exquisite sky blue. Issued in a special edition of only 50 sets. Don't miss this exciting new range.
