  • The exhibition spaces, over four floors, was certainly impressive. The wide array of different types of toys combined with the sheer volume and diversity of different time periods/manufacturers made for an interesting wander around. An exhibition on corsets through the ages was a welcome surprise, which included a comprehensive written book, entertained my curiosity, and served as a break between toys, toys and more toys. I dropped the fifth star because I believe this wasn't as child friendly as it could be. Every single element was behind glass, and a child may get bored, with no interactive exhibits.
  • One of the cutest museums I have ever seen. The details are just amazing but is too much to process. This is a really cute place, the dolls are full of history and the ladies in charge are really sweet. Lovely.
