Take a look at some of the toys we have loved and played with through the generations.

Our museums have handling collections which link to our main collections but you can actually touch them, which is great for learning and finding out more! We have the most fantastic handling collection of toys which you are invited to come and play with!

Did you ever master the cup and ball? Or the yo-yo? What was your favourite toy growing up? Everyone is welcome to join in, reminiscence about the toys you played with during your childhood and maybe introduce them to a new generation.

Discover more about toys from Tudor times to the modern day before exploring the Museum of Liverpool’s timeline of toys.
