    We must do, all our life we stay grown-up children, misfortune wants that we end up take ourselves too seriously... If our childhood toy soldiers are not men: the game forge, fire kills! Nothing more serious than the game, this museum is proof. Beautiful collections of toys from all eras even more remote, although exposed and assembled into different categories according to the toys (means of locomotion, dolls, etc.), depending on the types of games (games inside or outside, individual or company games, creative, construction games, educational games, etc...). A wonder to take the time to examine these documents and read the sound information that illuminate timely each showcase. There is the soul of every child who handled each of these toys, hidden in each one, he must get her... What happened to these children who have both played with these objects, sometimes worn by the years? The genius of childhood is deeply hidden in the lamp, more time to rub, man is devoured by time, Chronos is Cannibal... Toys are the symbols of their era, everything is abstract, progress, aspirations, social environments, fantasies and dreams of the moment. Such games, such as toys, such children, such men. The evolution of child's play, toy artisanal to industrial toy, from the simplest to the most sophisticated game, is well represented. With a bit of sadness, we see that the toy complies with social inequality: some toys of the period were simply inaccessible families smaller, what do you, through the centuries, the same and age-old stupidity following us and we harass, from cradle to grave... Just a little frustration for children, who would like to feel a few wonders, what is impossible unfortunately, we understand that... Highly, recommend to restore a little of our child's soul... The truth comes from the silent mouth of toys: are you wasting a moment in this museum that amuses and instructs all at once, and take custody, the toys of today preparing the adults of tomorrow. This isn't the kind of comments that we... console (game, of course)... OF WHO WE ARE IN OUR LIVES SO SERIOUS TOYS, ALLEGEDLY? Issue that deserves reflection... This museum responds. Even money is miniaturized form fun for kids: children and adults have one thing in common, they are not always sharing, fighting for tails of cherries and dream to accumulate treasures... Show me your toys, I'll tell you who you are... Each seeks his rattle... As long as there is no blood, guts, of flesh and bone, and above all, soul, too often forgotten. The bottle is broken, the essence remains, though even it evaporates, invisible but invincible... By the way, I see the puppet who gets agitated, but who is the puppeteer? "An idea is an unbreakable, free, and sometimes deadly toy." (Leon-Paul Fargue)

    Visit interesting and fun even for toddlers (9 months baby). Ideal opening hours during the summer. Fun to do if Moirans-mountain crossing.

    We could think that a Toy Museum would give rise to a slew of interactive exhibits... it is missed! The visit to this museum recalls the visit of a crazy aunt of dolls but all placed under glass. Here we do not touch, we don't laugh. The huge lack of history and contextualization is one of the worst museums I've visited.

    The Museum is very good. The children have loved them and so do we. However angry at the toy shop or we have spent more than 50 jouetdessine euros or thought in France but MADE IN CHINA, what good showed toys making know-how after is to find toys not made in the region... . In short the children are happy, but we as parents the balls...
