Pollock’s toy museum has been a destination for us since we moved to London. How things make us think has been a hobby horse of mine for the past couple of years. So I was happy that Liz and I could take a short excursion to Central London and walk amidst the toys.

The museum is housed in, well, a house, or at least an “up and down” with not too many conversions. The downstairs holds the toy shop and the lobby, and the staircases and the upper floors display the dolls, dollhouses, games, etc.

Some of my fascinations are construction toys …

I also found the war games interesting. Never too early to build a distaste for the kaiser.

Of course, the reason for Pollock’s being is the toy theatre. There must have been a hundred of them.


They also had some interesting specimen boxes.



If you ever want to get the imaginative juices flowing or at least cop some ideas for your doll house, I highly suggest it.
