Stolen horse-drawn vehicle toys
The Fillmore County Sheriff's Office is investigating the burglary that happened sometime between April 28 and May 4 at Ed's Museum in downtown Wykoff. Several metal antique toys were stolen from Ed's Museum in Wykoff, including several horse-drawn vehicle toys (a fire truck, a police patrol wagon, a stage coach and a Clydesdale wagon) and rare tin wind-up toy of four mice.
Nuremberg House, Dolls' House, 1673
This house was made in Nuremberg in 1673 - the date is written on the chimney. It is the oldest house in the Museum and is very similar to (though much smaller than) the houses in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg, Germany. The house was owned by wealthy people who could afford to commission specialist craftsmen to make miniatures of the full-sized versions that they normally made. Toy-making guilds did not exist at that time, so several guilds of specialist craftsmen would have been involved in making and furnishing the houses.
The second Toy Museum for a Day was held at Alresford Community Centre on Sunday 15th March 2009. Despite the warmest day of the year so far approx 450 visitors came to the show. At the entrance was an eye catching full size Dalek made by residents and day visitors to the Simply Unique Studio at Bells Piece, A Leonard Cheshire Disability home for people with learning difficulties. The amuseum' is a collection of toys brought together by various collectors from around the country.
