I recently went to Pollock’s Toy Museum in London. It’s a marvellous place full of wonderful toys, memories and ephemera. I was particularly fascinated by the collection of wax dolls which I found really quite unnerving! It wasn’t just the wax dolls either some of the wooden, tin and cloth toys were just as creepy.
Maybe it’s just me? I don’t think so…….
It wasn’t all scary however, they had some beautiful old teddy bears like this one from 1906!
