Hi, this is Maymuna!
We went to the Istanbul Toy Museum last week with my cousins. The Toy Museum is a museum of old toys from Istanbul, Germany and anywhere in Europe. You couldn’t play with the toys because they were in glass cases. The building was all white, and they had a giant statue of Nesruttine Hoca out front, who is a man from Turkish folk tales.
This first case is a collection of mixed children’s toys. If you look closely you will see a dolly oven. You will see a toy violin which is very old. You will see an old dolly and to the righthand side, an old fashioned Barbie doll.
They had a very old train set in a section across from the doll room. It was an old train, with a complete train set, a station wwith a restaurant. It was very long. As long as a couch. It was pretty cool.
This case was in the space room. This case is dedicated to Star Wars and Star Trek. Other toys in this room were about the first man on the moon, alien toys and astronauts. There was a grumpy man reading a newspaper. I don’t see what that has to do with it. My sister says “Don’t ask me what Star Trek is. I have no idea.”
But my FAVOURITE SECTION was the doll section. These are not big doll houses, these are tiny doll houses. Each scene was different with tiny little things inside.
I thought it was worth going to the Toy Museum. It was really cool. Thanks for reading my blog post. Bye bye!
