O-Gauge Children
Posted by vwrick on Monday, January 14, 2019 4:57 PM

As has been pointed out many times, adding figures to scenes makes them come alive.  I have added workers, passengers, etc., but have not been able to find a source for children - there are a number of places on my layout where they would be ideal.  Can anyone give me a good resource?  Thanks, Var

For older children, you may be able to use adults made to a smaller scale, like S, OO, or HO.

Not cheap, but Arttista has plenty of different child figures, and every other kind of figure.

I've tried that.  They look a bit like another species:

These are 1:43, 1:50 and 1:87.

True O scale kids have much larger proportions:

And having a layout that models Disneyland, I feel your pain!  Child figures seem to be only an afterthought to the manufacturers over the years.

k-line used to have children in their figure sets. I have roller skates, jumping rope boy pulling toy train, girl with puppy. Perhaps some other mfg. has molds.

I collect the figures from the Season's Bay (Dept 56) collection, and place them in the foreground.  They aren't "giants" like other D56 people, and are nicely detailed.
