Nuremberg Toy Museum

Great three story museum. My favourites were the tin soldiers, trains and post-1940's toys (the He-Man universe, legos and hippie barbie and 'her boyfriend ken'). Emily enjoyed the doll kitchens. The 3rd picture down shows how they used to make wooden animal toys - they would cut the outline of the animal in a large circle of wood and then slice it to make the individual animals - one wooden circle could make about 80 animals - pretty cool.
