Library Advent Calendar: Toy Stories

It is sometimes said that Christmas is really “for the kids”, and as such, spending it with children can certainly bring back that sense of unbridled joy first thing in the morning – maybe not ideal for those partial to a Christmas Eve night out!  However, when one thinks of Christmas, a word that can’t fail to spring to mind is TOYS!  And I think we all know that toys are in no way just “for the kids”!  Toys hold a special place in all of our hearts – whether you’re dazzled by modern gadgetry, or nostalgic for your childhood playthings, it’s okay to be fascinated by toys!

For more pictures of classic toys, please visit our toys exhibition on Capital Collections – featuring a slightly terrifying Fonzie doll!

And remember, you’re never too old to act like a kid, especially at Christmas!
