The New York Toy Museum

A friend once told me of an acquaintance, a woman who had grown up in New York.

This woman was unusual in that she knew of a wonderful toy museum in New York.

When she was a small child her mother took her to this museum often, saying she should be very careful. She could touch some of the toys on display, but she had to very careful not to damage any of them, as they were quite valuable.

The child enjoyed the visits. They were fun and she learned much about toys during those visits.

The museum even had a name – The FAO Schwartz Toy Museum.

The woman was almost an adult before she learned FAO Schwartz was not a museum, but a toy store.

What a clever and charming mother she had!

Happy Holidays to All — Toy Museums are where you find them.
