An American Toy Story

Until 30 October 2016

Just like the films that inspired the toys and collectables in our new exhibition, An American Toy Story promises to be a real blockbuster!

This exhibition explores the huge impact that movie-licensing had on toy production and the way we play. A collection of vintage treasures and modern classics, spanning over 100 years, is on display together for the very first time. Whether you’re a Disney princess or the next James Bond, you’re certain to find something to delight you in this show.

Exhibition highlights include;

  • Iconic early-twentieth-century celebrity dolls, including Charlie Chaplin and Shirley Temple
  • Classic movie posters
  • Early Disney toys, including a rare 1930s Donald Duck
  • A collection of vintage James Bond toys
  • Favourite toys from the Science-Fiction films of the 1980s
  • Superman costume worn by Christopher Reeve
  • An interactive room with dressing up and photo zone
