Known as The Toy Workshop of the World and The Land of Toys, Germany dominated the toy market for most of the 19th-century. During the period, around two thirds of the toys in American shops came from Germany. This exhibition features a colourful variety of 19th-century German wooden toys from dolls and soldiers to arks and animals.
