Visitor Tips and News About Kidd's Toy Museum
The Kidd Toy Museum is an amazing collection of toys. Many are cast-iron banks from the early 1900s, trains, trucks, and German Steiff animals. The collection is overseen by Mr. Kidd's daughter, who is happy to chitchat about any of the toys. You could wander around this place for hours just marveling at all of the super rare and interesting toys.[Jody Day, 04/07/2008]
