Bletchley Park is the historic site of secret British codebreaking activities during WWII and birthplace of the modern computer, it also has a small toy museum. Luckily the park is local and we are able to visit it regularly. My children love to look at the old toys dating from the 1930's to the 1950's, some of which they are allowed to play with. It's an inspirational place full of quirky dolls, gorgeous packaging, posters and many handmade toys made from recycled materials. What is amazing is how many toys are still hot favourites with kids today. I love the fact that most of the toys are wooden. There is very little plastic in sight!
