Welcome to Toy World in Helsingborg

Toy World is an experience for both kids and grown-ups. We're neither a play centre nor a traditional toy historic museum, but an amazing world with toy exhibitions, miniland, dragon cave, spooky room, play zone and fun activities. Unique in both what’s exhibited and the way it’s done.

A world of toys, magic, imagination and nostalgia

Experience thousands of toys from the 1960's until today, trains and slot tracks, music, sound, light and motion effects (that you can activate by pressing buttons). If you look at each toy for one second it takes you several hours! So you should take your time - and don't miss any of the clever details.

A perfect adventure for anyone who wants to spend quality time with family and friends, while having a trip down memory lane. Suits all toy interested, collectors, families, grandparents, schools, companies, societies and tourists. Our youngest visitor so far has been only 3 days and the oldest 97 years old.

"We love toys, but most of all to build up stories and spread joy."

In 50 years of private collecting our purpose has never been to invest in toys in sealed boxes. Our philosophy has rather been "unbox the toy - regardless the price." The nostalgic, cultural value and the playfulness has always been the most important part. In 1999 we fulfilled our dream of opening up our large collections to the public, by founding Stockholm Miniature Museum, which has gradually evolved into today’s Toy World.

Our goal is to give our visitors the absolute best experience, ideas, inspiration, joy and happiness, no matter what age. You should be able to come back to us often and regularly, and meet new, larger or smaller changes.  Toy World is founded and operates without any economical contributions from either the state or private financiers. We are a member of the Association of Swedish Museums and the Swedish Toy and Baby Association. In 2021 we celebrate Toy World's 22nd anniversary of which 8 years in Helsingborg, Sweden.
