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

This is a really lovely toy museum - it doesn't matter how old you are you will recognise some of your childhood toys! We enjoyed our walk round and the couple who run the place and own the exhibits are really sweet. The extended family who own the toys have collected over 65 years. From the vast number of toys...

Amazing treasure trove of toys from the last 30-100 years. Pity such a small collection (space wise) but certainly squeezed into every nook and cranny. Very enjoyable visit that fills approx an hour, so worth a visit if passing through Callander on a days trek.

We only heard about this place when we drove passed it coming from Stirling. What a great place to visit, the younger guy at the til when we entered was helpful showing us where to go. Our 7 year old was amazed to see the better quality of toys that we played with. The soldier room was jaw dropping, there's... More
