Celia’s Virtual Toy Museum
Not content with one blog, I have created a second – with the above name! The idea came to me on a recent visit to London’s Pollock’s Toy Museum. Having kept a number of toys from my own childhood, and some from my children’s, it occured to me that there were the makings of a nostalgic Virtual Toy Museum of the 20th Century. My mother, born in 1920, still has the teddy bear she was given as a baby, so the site may delve yet further back through the last century.
At the moment, I’ve only planted the seeds of the museum. As and when time permits I shall add more items – from dolls to Dinky toys and more. Feel free to visit and see how it grows. Do add comments if the site brings back memories of your childhood. I might even create a page dedicated to visitors’ favourite toys …
Meanwhile, pop and have a look at the site’s very, very early stages at http://celiasvirtualtoymuseum.wordpress.com/
