Toys are loved by children and what if we tell you that you can take your children to a place that is filled with nothing but thousands of toys from all over the world. There is a museum in Penang known as the toy museum, that happens to be the largest toy museum in the world. It is safe to say that the museum happens to be a home for over one hundred thousand toys ranging from dolls, cars, trains and several other collectibles. For its huge toy collection, it has been mentioned in the Malaysian Book of records, as it happens to be the country’s first ever toy museum, having a large figurine and toy collection.

When you walk into the entrance door, you would surely be taken back to your childhood memories for experiencing some collection from the Bears to little ponies, Doraemon and several other collectibles. It is therefore a must visit and worthwhile attraction to be visited for the kids and the adults at the same time.

How it was started?

According to the owner of the Museum Loh, Leah Cheng, his passion of toys was the starting point of the museum’s foundation. After he visited the London Toy and model museum at 19 years of age, he was impressed and inspired from the toy collection. The first ever toy that he bought was Popeye and since that day, his collection just continued to grow on and on. Today, all the types and models of toys are found here.

It was originally located in Jalan Tanjung Bungah, before being shifted to another location in Teluk Bahang, beside a school.
