Collecting toys may sound like child's play but for shoppers at a local toy show, it was serious business.

The Lancaster Event Center hosted the 27th annual Toy and Buckle Show Sunday.

It features vendors from nine different states filling almost 200 tables with toys of all different kinds.

Around 2,500 people were expected to attend.

Organizers say some people come to re-capture a piece of their childhood.

Others are serious collectors on the hunt for specific items.

They say the show isn't just good for toy vendors and collectors - it's also good for the local economy.

Vendors and visitors from out of state book rooms, buy gas and eat at local restaurants.
