Toys Tour

Let’s take a look into our specially curated vintage dog-character toys amongst our 8,500 items of collection, featuring Bonzo that is near a century old!

Originally a cartoon character, Bonzo was the inspiration behind these high manufacture merchandise from toys – it is both cuddly and mechanical to ashtrays, pin-trays, trinket boxes, car mascots, jigsaw puzzles, books, calendars, sweets, and a profusion of postcards. We take a glimpse back into Bonzo’s history with our vast collection you will get to see during the tour.

Do you know our featured Bonzo toy was in production for 7 years, from 1922-1929, that’s the popularity of Bonzo. Everybody wants a piece of him you bet!

The maker of Bonzo toys actually had all toys sewn on a label that states that it is a hygenic toy. Isn’t it as good as a stamp of green light for the absolute cleanliness of the toy when manufactured? This label is something that is rare, if not never seen on toys made these days!

Alongside Bonzo, this tour will also introduce you to Playful Pluto and Snoopy Astronaut. Sharing with you how these lovable dog characters from cartoons or comics played an important part in the toys produced after them!
