My sideline to regular Pickelhauben has always been Kinder helms of which I have many.

These 3 stunning pieces just came in.

1) paper mache Bavarian Officer helmet with silver fittings.

3) last one is a super deluxe French kinder helmet and kuirass, the detail on this set blows away my other one. Look at the detail on the leather straps etc.

There is a museum here somewhere! I would bet someone will love to display these as part of an exhibition. You really have something that is quite a niche.

Well done Slim, excellent items. You should write a book on these kinderhelmes based on your collection.

It is amazing that these items have survived all of these years. Kids can be pretty rough on " army " equipment.

He could send them down here. We have a very nice toy museum.

Or possibly the World War I Museum?! I could let Doran at least know that it exists. Notice how we are making deals with James's property! Seriously James this is some seriously good stuff.

The National WWI Museum here actually does have some Kinder military related items on display, including a very cool looking backpack, complete with attached messkit and blanket.
