YoYoFlamingo and I were out in IL for a couple of wedding showers last month. My parents are awesome and said that since we'd have time in kill in Indianapolis (where we flew in) we could go to any museum we wanted. Of course we chose Carter's Toy Museum in nearby Zionsville. It was a treasure trove of old toys and special Disney items.
All pictures we took are in this Flickr set
Here are a few:
The musum is located right in the cute village.
Right inside the door are a few old Disney Stores figs. He had a lot all over the museum!!
Floor one had the antique shop, a few toys and a garage of old cars.
The first floor was filled with old ride on cars. It also had a few old shooting games and a few bumper cars!
Old time and fake Mickey and Donald
There was also an old friend hanging around (and my parents)
The third floor had case after case of toys!! It also had a working carousel, an alive tree, a coke corner and an old time moving toy.
