On a recent visit to Callander we visited this toy museum. Run by a brother and sister, and handed down from their parents, this is a fascinating collection of vintage (and some more recent) toys. It was a real trip down memory lane for me! I'd heartily recommend a visit for old and young alike. Great value at £3 per... More

During a recent stay in Callander we decided to visit this attraction to pass the time on a very wet morning. The space is pretty tight but is crammed with toys in various categories. There are rooms devoted to model figures, space toys, transport etc. Staff were friendly and welcoming and we spent an hour or so looking around.

A true blast for all lovers of toys, happy memories and nostalga. Do not be put off by the small unassuming entrance to the museum, we were amazed by the amount and quantity of toys on show here. Can't stress enough how brilliant this place is. VISIT!! You will not be disappointed.

This is the most amazing house, packed full of so many era's of toys that I am sure from the 50's to the 90's your childhood memories and the toys you owned will be in here. Stunning collection, you can even buy some old toys as well. It is a small place, so a fair bit isn't wheelchair friendly, and... More
