This tiny rolling duck is made in the same way as those of ancient times. It was bought in Shuk Betsalel. The stall holder was selling off games and toys that he had got from the basement of a ''toy shop that had closed down previously in Allenby.'' 

This doll of a boy was bought at the same time as the duck in Shuk Betsalel. It was made in USA.

Celluloid head of a doll bought in Shuk Kikar Dizengoff. Sold by a boy selling off things from his grandmother's cupboard. She had brought the doll with her to Israel when she came here in the 1930's.

Two very small dolls which came to Israel with their owners. The one on the left is from Austria and the one on the right from France. It was lovingly mended after grandchildren broke it.

As there is not enough space in the cupboards for all of the toys and games in our collections you have to look up at the ceiling to view some. Charles Eames card set is on a tray in the middle, Teddy Bears are in a hammock, Barbie is in her heaven  - with some friends and Superman carries off a basket of baddies.

We have hundreds of Israeli card games and board games.
