We found this place online and thought we’d go for a visit. As soon as we arrived the lady owner was so welcoming and took time to explain all about the collection and how they started. The collection was great and took us right back...More
Sad to see the negative reviews because this is a quirky little gem run by a lovely couple. Although it isn't a huge place it is jam packed with toys. The cafe was good too with a chance to have a chat with the owners...More

Don't be put off by the leaflet if you see one at a tourist info point.I nearly didn't bother going but gave in to my son's opinion, which it turned out was spot on. It is not gloomy or creepy , instead it is completely...More

Neath is possible, as it is about an hour's drive from here. Do you meet in the afternoon or evening? I don't do a slideshow, but I do bring a couple of large boxes of vintage toys to illustrate my talk. For a WI, I charge £25 plus fuel. Best wishes....Hilary.
