This museum was interesting. Several toys of my time were there and that I once had. I was able to show the child what kind of gifts was given to me by the elf or what I got for birthday. There were also modern toys.

A good option to visit while in Tartu, best enjoyed with kids who can enjoy different activities. It shows mostly Estonian toys and some soviet toys also. Pretty different if you grew up with Transformers/Gundam/Atari etc. Price of admission is 5eur.

After lots of very serious site seeing in Estonia, this is very welcome relief. The more serious side is the huge gulf between the toys of the wealthy and those of the agrarian workers. After that it's fascinating looking at the development of toys over...More
