Exhibitions
Terrific Toys: made and played in Enfield
Terrific Toys: made and played in Enfield celebrates the golden era of toys and games, made in the borough by famous names such as Spears Games and Lesney Matchbox and played with by generations of local children.

The exhibition, looks at how toys developed and explain how some children’s lives changed dramatically from working and doing chores to having time to play with toys and games.

Some of the world’s best-selling toys were once manufactured in Enfield and this nostalgic exhibition will also explore the borough’s rich history of toy manufacture dating back to the turn of the last century.

Nostalgic adults and inquisitive children will marvel over a wide selection of toys from the museum collection, including; Lotto board games, model steam engines, Top Trumps card games, toy soldiers, alphabet bricks, Tiddlywinks, Yo Yos and dolls.

Terrific Toys brings to life the history of toys for new generations, while adults take a trip down memory lane.
