about the trust

About us
Not a physical shop, not a museum

Pollock’s Toy Museum Trust, as its name suggests, is related to a museum of toys. The trust’s collection remains there, although we have been prevented from having free use of it for the benefit of the public, as our trust deed requires us to do.

The Trust has acquired some additional items and will be glad to accept donations of objects, subject to the constraints of storage space, so that we have resources for exhibitions and publications, and perhaps eventually for another permanent display, if we receive the help we need to find a suitable space.

We have a small but growing number of things for sale, but not a physical shop, although we recommend Benjamin Pollock’s Toyshop in Covent Garden Market as a lovely place to visit and find unusual toys, including some of our own products. We have a stall at least twice a year, at the May Fayre at St Paul’s Churchyard, Covent Garden, in May (normally the second Sunday), and at the Art Workers’ Guild Christmas Fair at 6 Queen Square, Bloomsbury.
