Van Mall recently took residents to Kidd’s Toy Museum, a private toy museum featuring over 15,000 toy items, including antique mechanical banks. The museum is a historical icon and our residents enjoyed the day reliving the past as the toys recalled specific childhood memories.

Recently, our residents and staff went to Kidd’s Toy Museum, a private collection of more than 15,000 antique and vintage toys from 1869 to 1939. Our residents braved the cold weather and took a walk down memory lane into their childhood past.
Residents loved the Bobby Lee doll and the vintage toy airplanes, as well as the large dollhouses. The toys really brought back memories for the residents and our staff had a blast reliving those memories with residents.
