Explore Pollock’s Toy Museum, home to a collection of toys and games that capture the nostalgia of childhood.

The museum can currently be found in two locations while they search for a permanent home. The first is a small shop and display in Leadenhall Market, currently open Wednesday and Friday at 11am-3pm. The second spot at the Whitgift Centre in Croydon includes a larger display and hosts toy theatre performances and children's activities most weeks. This is open every Saturday 11am-4pm.

The museum's collection includes teddy bears, dolls, puppets, tin toys and dolls' houses. However, the museum’s jewel in the crown is the collection of toy theatres complete with plays and the engraved metal plates used when printing the theatre sets.

Take home a memento of your visit from each location's shop shop which sells toy theatres, wooden and tin toys, soft animals, and more.
