Visit the shop everytime im in Callander, the family are all very friendlly and I always come away with a collectible or some comics from the vast collection, the museum itself is really fun and it doesnt break the bank good way to spend an hour on a rainy day.

A unique and very well stocked Toy Museum and Toy Shop. The Museum is suitable for all ages of adults more so than children. A great trip down memory lane. Well worth the low cost entry charge.

Having visited the museum three times now, I can't recommend it highly enough. Don't be put off by it's unassuming outward appearance - rather like the Tardis, it's a lot bigger on the inside! The museum comprises a vast collection of toys, grouped around several themes, such as sci-fi, military, dolls, etc, arranged over two floors and a multitude of... More

The museum is excellent, I am both a collector and dealer of comic book related items and the museum had some of the most amazing things I have seen. Loads of DC items I had never seen before and will struggle to see anywhere else but thats not to mention so many other cool items and has a little something... More

The collection is huge, with dolls, model soldiers, tin toys, teddy bears, die cast vehicles, model railways, games, books, slot cars, TV and film toys. Toys from Victorian times to the present day. I found my doll in the museum which I was given when I was 3... More

This is an incredible private collection to suit children from 5 to 95 years old. Excellent. It is easily discovered on the Main Street.

We spent a short time in the museum which has a very large collection of every toy known. Felt that it was a little too packed in to appreciate some of the items, but understand that space is a consideration. You will probably see toys that will bring back happy childhood memories.

While staying in Aberfoyle a couple of days we nipped in to this Toy Museum on the way to our Hotel well worth your time popping in for a look. I suddenly got swept up in nostalgia. I could go on and on and on about this place, you won't be dissapointed and well worth the £3 to look round.... More
