Balocchivecchi Certaldo toys & comics comes back with the second edition
Balocchivecchi Certaldo Toys & Comics comes back. The Exchange show market dedicated to collecting games and vintage toys, comics, action figures, mangas. Thanks to the varied range of exhibitors present, visitors can search for the missing piece for their collection, exchange purchases or even find buyers for their old toys or comics.
The event, born from an idea of the Certaldo Pro loco councilor Cosimo Dani, organized by the Pro loco under the patronage of the Municipality of Certaldo, in collaboration with the Polis Association and the Youth Council, after the success of last year, reaches the second edition that will take place in Certaldo at the theatre “I Macelli” Sunday 15 March 2015 from 10 to 20 with free admission. Among the novelties of this year, in addition to the expansion of the time (extended also to the morning), to a larger number of exhibitors and the preparation of a real exhibition of vintage toys, we find the association ProGiocoFirenze (organizer of FirenzeGioca) that will manage the specific area dedicated to vintage box games. Special tables will be set up and those in the audience will want to have fun playing some of the most beautiful and significant titles of the 80/90 years.
Furthermore, two talented cartoonists from Certaldo, Dimitri Gori and Patrick Piazzalunga, both collaborators of some of the most important Italian labels in the sector, will be guests of Balocchivecchi 2015. There will also be a space dedicated to vintage robot-themed cake design, and the Certaldo Youth Council will be in charge of setting up a workstation for vintage videogames in which the public will be able to try out the retrogames of 20 or 30 years ago.
Finally, this year there will also be a tournament on the popular “Magic” card game by Decimopianeta comics shop.
The areas related to the event have been a fertile ground for enthusiasts and collectors all over the world for many years, so the event also aims to provide a cognitive and explanatory end regarding the world of collecting, role playing, toys, characters cartoons and the most famous souls for forty years now.
Balocchivecchi, strong of the almost one thousand appearances recorded during the 2014 edition is addressed not only to the expert collectors but also to the curious, but especially to children who in the last edition have come in large numbers accompanied by their parents participating in the event with interest and enthusiasm.
