On entering this museum, I overheard a patron’s scathing remark on being so thankful that she is not ‘a collector’. To each his own, although, we are all collectors.....even only of memories. And the memories inside this establishment cannot be explained. Whether you are particularly interested in toys does not matter at all. There is something interesting around every corner....and items we all know. The museum is small, but brimful with lovely toys from yesteryear and more contemporary pieces. It only costs R10 per adult and R5 per child to enter. The proprietor and I had a chat about the low entrance fee and unfortunately the future seems quite bleak. The entrance fees are not enough for the upkeep of the museum. More visitors are needed. And possibly donations! An established, charming, one-of-a-kind museum like this cannot be lost because of a few rands. So everybody, move your bodies towards Simon’s Town and go visit this gem.
