    Ok, I am a toy fanatic. I am biased, but this collection is stunning! I have collected toys for almost 30 years, but this collection is so far advanced in breadth and depth that it difficult to find a...  more »

    Open at 9.30am, this was something to see before most shops opened. Spread over 5 levels, the collection of toys is awesome. So many unusual and rare toys were found there and well displayed, although...  more »

    “A flashback​ to childhood” This is truly a hidden gem. I'm glad I saw the signage and found it. Walked by it twice. The vast amount of toys could be spread out more but I understand about space. Also the vast amounts of toy guns is great. Allowed children to expand their imagination. The early toys to the radio & television shows that were the parts of your childhood. I highly recommend if you enjoyed toys as a child or you collect them as an adult.

    Nice memories seeing childhood toys which are mostly now out of market being treasured and displayed nicely in show cases. However lights abit dim, will be good to add little more brightness!

    Five floors full of old toys. Really interesting look into the past, and how toys were so diversified. Will be interesting for adults too, as well as younger adults to see the old version of the toys and cartoons we are familiar with. Price of $15 for adult ticket is slightly expensive though. Expect to spend about an hour here.

    If you're in the neighbourhood and just bumming around this will help keep you busy for 15-20mins. Toys on exhibit date back to the 1930s but there's no narrative to talk you through the evolution of toys. Entry seemed excessive for what was on offer.

    If you are a collector of vintage toys or are prone to bouts of nostalgia remembering back to your child hood you're bound to find something here which will make you smile. The museum is well laid out over 4 or 5 floors with descriptions of toys and other collectables along side their display cases to help provide prospective. I've been here twice now and enjoyed both times. Expect to spend about 90 mins looking around.
