Scary Dolls at the Toy Museum.

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.

Here are some of my photographs showing my favorites.. 
    

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!
