When & Where
Pollocks Toy Museum Trust
Pollocks Toy Museum Trust was set up in 1968 as a registered charity associated with the privately-owned Pollocks Toy Museum in London. Gifts of objects from the public and many acquisitions were vested in the Trust. Owing to actions by the owners of the museum, the Trust has not been able to manage this collection since 2004, but continues to operate as a publisher of cards, books and toy theatre related wrapping paper, and as an organiser of exhibitions and events.
