The Toy Collector knows that nostalgia exists in everyone and seeing a toy or picture can instantly bring forward a previously deeply buried memory. Taking a walk through NZ Museum of Toys & Collectibles is a rare opportunity to experience a very broad range of toys all in the one building and is sure to bring a smile to your face and remind you of some childhood memories, whether your 4 or 84.
The treasures on display are the result of years of collecting. The toys are all old and they are not all in pristine condition – after all, toys are meant to be played with. However, we want to show that if toys are taken care of, they can be kept or passed on to create more memories.
