Tokyo Toy Museum 東京おもちゃ美術館
Tokyo Toy Museum is run by the Art and Play Creation Association, a certified NPO that promotes “multi-generational exchange” and “living with trees”.
Approximately 5,000 toys are exhibited in 10 classrooms in an old school building built before the war. There are more than 10,000 toys that you can play with. There is also a toy workshop held here, using recycled materials.
There are so many things you can do here. You can find award-winning toys and the latest award-winning toys since 1985 here. The “Good Toy” section has a toy award system that is decided by the votes of play specialists. Every year, a toy consultant selects and chooses toys on the market to be displayed here. In the exhibition hall, you can compare the history of toys, regions and countries from the collection of 100,000 items in 100 countries.
