Long Description:
Sidmouth Toy & Model Museum, in a former chapel, Sidmouth. A collection of toys, models and memorabilia

"A trip down Memory Lane

Come and discover a world of vintage and modern toys and models housed in a stunning environment. Experience the sense of nostalgia for days gone by as you revisit childhood memories.

For younger visitors an opportunity to see toys from the past and to enjoy modern and contemporary toys, including Star Wars, Harry Potter, Dr Who and an 00 gauge model railway. See a display of Pelham Puppets, moving teddy bears and other animals in the Steiff Automatons, a model of the Titanic made from 22,000 matchsticks and a model village populated by furry animals with a working train and cable car.

Hear about the adventures of a Tri-ang pedal car reunited with its owner after being apart for 35 years and see the teddy bears picnic in a woodland display with pedal cars from 1950s and 1960s. See a wide range of Corgi and Dinky cars from the same period."
