Hove Museum & Art Gallery

This exhibition is now closed


Everyone has a favourite toy. They inspire our imaginations, our play, and help us as we grow. In later years, they hold cherished memories and make us nostalgic for times gone by.

Whether it’s a teddy, dolls house or a transforming car, this exhibition celebrates toys of all kinds, from across the eras.

On display are toys from Hove Museum’s very own Wizard’s Attic along with some popular favourites, and others that have not been loved for some time.

Children and young people from Brighton & Hove have helped create exciting displays of their own favourite toys, celebrating our shared affection for these familiar friends.
