Boys and their Toys are catered for in this small museum in Simon's town which is crammed with a huge collection of models - cars, trains, machinery et al. There is a a limited amount to interest girls but Boy's and Dad's should not miss it!

An interesting museum dedicated to toys – of all shapes, sizes, makes, models and themes. I found it very nostalgic especially for those who grew up with miniature train sets and matchbox cars! It is definitely one place where you could get lost in memories of your childhood or take your young ones to so they too can make new... More

Huge collection of toy soldiers, trains, cars, dolls, doll houses, and a working toy railway (our favourite!). Charming and impressive when you can appreciate the time and effort gone into making toys. Some are for sale. R10 per adult entrance, R5 per child, but I think it might be more suitable for slightly older children who can look without touching

Loved popping into this little museum... something for the whole family to look at, and small, so definately worth a visit.

How amazing to see dinky cars in the shapes and models of cars driven when I was a teenager- then vintage models from my parents day and older ! Wonderful toy trains and even a scale electric set that ran through the tunnels. Tea- sets and miniatures, dolls of all sizes and periods. Cupid dolls which I can recall buying... More

Has to be one if the best collections of die cast toys. They are very clued up about what is of value and what is not. Wide selection of models for sale at good prices. Here you will find a passion for collecting rare and valuable dinky cars.

Lots of Corgi & Matchbox cars. An interesting way to spend some time if you like old cars. A good amount of toy soldiers & train cars but fewer dolls and other types of toys. The price is right!

Visiting this collection was a treat! Incredible collection and so much care has gone into this establishment. Very interesting chatting to the dear curator. We could have spent hours here.

I was astonished at how many old toys this shop has. And many items are for sale. The gentleman are very informed and have an excellent background knowledge of their toys. A great experience for young and old alike. There is probably something for everyone with a vast collection of cars, dolls and trains to just mention a few.
