The Museum

In February 2016, many years of dreams and collecting evolved into the opening of The Toy Collector. An eclectic collection of toys through the ages designed to put a smile on your face and remind you of childhood days of playing whether recent or very distant. This privately funded museum is an ever expanding and changing display of both our own and others generously lent collections.

The Shop

As well as displaying our love for toys, we have a small shop (which is also online) where we assist others with their own collections. Our range includes diecast, Hot Wheels, Playmobil and puzzles  available to purchase or lay-by for those special gifts. If your not into online shopping and prefer seeing and picking up the objects you are buying then come and visit us.

We are the Sole South Island distributors of Regal Soldiers - proudly NZ made.
