If there’s ANY toy that you miss from the 1950s, one will likely find their child time favourites in this humble museum. Their collection was simply amazing. Cassettes, VHS, courtyard games… nothing was too retro for this place.
I loved this museum. It was cosy and unpretentious. Rare trait these days, as many museums try to increase their appeal by glamourise everything, which in my opinion takes the appeal away. This was simply lovely. I was really impressed by their huge folk/kids song collection.
They ran some ‘experience based’ workshop where you make your own toy. E.g. puzzle, wooden puzzle etc. It was a pity that we spotted this too late, otherwise, we would have totally signed up. We spent a good 4 hours in the museum because we were obsessed to watch old anime, listen to Japan kids’ music and just stopping to read everything. Most people probably finish this place WAY quicker than we did it.

So cool! Those paper dolls. I used to make my own paper dolls! 😀
Ja, me too!! I used to draw ‘rooms’ in notebooms to house the paper dolls ????
OMG are you ME? I made rooms for them too! And slots for the dolls! Ie a bed with a slot for the doll to sleep in! ????
Exactly!! ???? ‘beddings’ that were paper appliques wahaha
I glued 2 pages together to create “pockets” ✂️
I did the same!!! ????
One day we will meet! ????
Yes. I agree ????
Cute. I love the little sylvanian family figures as a kid x
I like the lighting in the curation, it gives a feeling of “I’m home and I’ve collected all these items”
Ja, exactly! It was very homely and we didn’t want to leave. Some displays were available for ‘playing’ too 😉
That so cool!
What the heck is that doll with the eye for a face? ????
Wahahha that’s a Japanese classic manga character, Kitaro 🙂
That’s slightly creepy to say the least ????
