Mexico Part 3 Toy Museum

IMG_1333sm

One of the highlights of this trip was the Toy Museum in Mexico City.

Roberto Shimiza’s family emmigrated to Mexico from Japan after WWII. His family had an import toy store. So he grew surrounded by toys and started collecting very young. Eventually the idea came to start a museum. He is a real artist. No other toy museum that I have visited have as creative displays.  His son is also an artist and is into graffiti. There are murals in their offices done by artists from all over the world.
