Well, we did it! Family vacation has come and gone! We got back recently and as I’m going through so many of the pictures I took, the ones from the World’s Largest Toy Museum are some of the most fun!
This year, the Flints headed back to Branson, MO to finish what we started last year! 😉 We spent 3.5 action packed days exploring and doing more and different things than we did last year! They’ll be a post about the rest of those, but on to the World’s Largest Toy Museum Complex!
The first thing I noticed when we walked in was all the stuff! Seriously, it’s amazing how they have it all packed in and displayed, but the other thing I noticed was how warm and welcoming all the staff was! There are three different buildings that make up the complex and every staff member was bright, bubbly, warm, and welcoming! As we walked around, I also noticed scriptures placed around the buildings and other tips to let me know that they were Christians, which I thought was very neat and I loved knowing I was among believers!
The amount of toys and collectibles was endless, I’ve never seen anything like it before in my life! It’s hard to explain everything we say, so I thought I’d take you on a photographic tour of some of our favorites!
If you grew up in the late 80’s and early 90’s, you’ll recognize Flounder from The Little Mermaid. Well, the bottom right Flounder was a Christmas ornament put out by McDonald’s or Hardees (if I remember correctly) and I had one for many years! I loved that movie and still do!
Of course being the farm family and agricultural family we are, we were drawn to the collection of John Deere equipment and toys!
What girl in the 80’s didn’t have a Cabbage Patch Kid?! I actually had 4 or 5 (I still have them in a storage tub in the basement!) Obviously, I had to hunt to see if any were the ones I had!
And trolls…children of the 90’s all had trolls! I know that I had quite an extensive collection at one point!
M was a HUGE Curious George fan when he was younger, so he spotted this display right away!
All of these were actually toys that T had when he was little! How fun to see the things that he played with!
And this guy…well, no one had him, but if you take a close look at his name, you’ll know why he had to take his picture!
While I took so many more pictures, I couldn’t include them all! We loved exploring all the different buildings together! Barbies, Star Wars, and Star Trek, board games, puzzles, etc. You name it and they had it! I think the boys enjoyed seeing the older toys and seeing what T and I played with as kids!
The final building also had a model train club set up in it and we all enjoyed seeing the intricate set-up and details that those guys give to their displays! It was quite impressive!
Even though you can’t play with the toys, there are several spots for interactive play! The boys enjoyed Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots, Checkers, and strategically placing some army guys around their camp!
If you’re planning on going, be aware that it’s tight quarters and you can’t play with the toys as they are all behind glass, but it’s a great activity for a rainy or extra hot day in Branson! Bathrooms are readily available and CLEAN, which is huge in my book! Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely recommend the World’s Largest Toy Museum to families and individuals alike!
