Some of you may have seen Pollocks Toy shop in Covent garden. Well this is Pollocks Toy Museum
These two houses make up Pollocks Toy Museum. The one on the right was built in the 1880s and the one on the left in the 1780s. There is a noticeable difference in the size of the rooms. the 18th cent house has quite low ceilings and tiny rooms. Each room is filled with cases of toys, games, dolls and so on.
These are English puppets known as Punch and Judy and have been around since the end of the 17th cent. Very common during the last cent to see a Punch and Judy show at the sea-side.
These are the stairs leading from the 19thC house to the 18thC house.
A lot of the toys I remembered from my childhood. How to feel old in one easy lesson!
