I loved this place! When you walk in all the old school toys in the cases brought back so many childhood memories about Barbies and Sylvanian Families and Lego, and all before you've paid and gone into the museum itself! My partner loved all the old school cars and planes and things, I loved the toy displays and especially the furry VW which I remember being in Sally Cant Skate in the late 90s down Riccarton Road in Christchurch. The collections of various old things like McDonalds toys and Meccano and bowsers and televisions and telephones etc. kept us entertained for a good few hours. My favourite part by far was the vintage peddle car which once I spotted, I ran off while my partner checked out the paddock of tractors behind one of the hangars and cruised by and picked him up in it. Wish we got a few more photos in it but I posted one on Instagram anyway. Will definitely be bringing my future children here one day.
