Pollock’s Toy Museum

London, Great Britain


Olga Steb

They have been making and selling toys since the middle of the 1950s. Some people may get a slightly creepy mystic feeling from this place, with its walls covered in black-and-white pictures of the owner at his workplace, incredibly narrow winding stairs in the rooms, and old dolls everywhere behind the glass, bearing the patina of age. Such approach to a museum, however, may be better than simply looking at exhibits. The building itself is really interesting and dares the visitors to go explore it. Dolls and toys gathered here come from various countries: you will see large porcelain dolls from Europe, paper dolls from China, pieces from a Japanese puppet-theatre and even the first teddy-bear made in Britain in 1905.
