  • Beautiful and fun museum dripping with nostalgia (ignore the rather cheap gift shop outside). So many memories and enough information to keep you interested. Make sure you visit the quirky Mr Punch bar/restaurant downstairs for a drink/snack afterwards... more vintage delights down there. Oh, and lovely staff.
  • Small museum but densely packed with vintage toys, mostly from 50's, 60's era. Interesting to collectors, or to those who wish to relive their childhood.
  • Collections of toys on 4 levels. Most toys from the era when children had to look after toys and use their imaginations. Lots of tin, lead paint, colour, clockwork etc. Nostalgic stuff.
  • Very cool place. Amazing purpose built building. Excellent staff.
  • Quite expensive for a private museum and gift shop is too costly but there are endless toys inside. Each floor had a different toy theme.
