We found it by chance walking around Euston and Bloomsbury. I think just looking at the toys and the children's attractions is quite a welcome sight when you are walking around central London

Mainly English toys (of course), but also tings from The Commonwealth, like India. You climb stairs up and down, peeping into small rooms loaded with toys. Many dolls. The building itself is worth seeing from inside.

We visited this museum as part of the London pass. Fascinating place, with lots to see. Not very large but a trip down memory lane. Small gift area.

A wonderful quirky museum with a great range of historic toys, from building block sets to toy theaters to original Sooty and Sweeps puppets. And the building has great historic charm as well. A nice toy shop awaits at the end of the museum. All...More

This sophisticated and sociable slice of Central
London is a shopper’s paradise, offering the latest
fashions, gadgets, and souvenirs. Fitzrovia is
conveniently located between the major retail
thoroughfares of Regent Street to the west and
Tottenham Court Road to the east, with a handful of
well connected Tube stations dotted around the area
for easy transport. This neighbourhood is a favorite
