Toy Museum

I have walked my feet off in London this week and seen one wonderful thing after another.  The other morning we went to a toy museum.  The origin of the museum was a collection of lithographs of paper theaters and other printed materials for toys.  It was an absolutely charming place - tiny rooms in a building with parts from both the 17th and 18th centuries.  Crooked steps and low ceilings.  I took these photos of 2 of the dolls - one is Ophelia and the other a fashion doll. I collect old toys and dolls and this place was thrilling.
