Tartu's cutest museum. The toy museum is fun for big kids, too! The exhibition involves historical and contemporary toys from city and countryside, home-made toys, puppets and figures from TV programmes, dolls from all over the world, teddy bears and about everything kids play with. For the children there is also a play-house where they can really play, not only admuire things in glass showcases.

For "big kids" like me, the historical part was most fascinating, especially the hand-made toys. I adored the piglets, hand-knitted from leftover wool in the same multicolour patterns that are used to knit clothing. I would love the pattern - must give it a try to figure it out...

Karu Lillekäpp (Teddy Flower Paw) is the museum's mascot and symbol.
