World’s Biggest Toy Collection

Sunday, February 27, 2011

A collection of 35,000 vintage toys dating from 1850 to 1940 are on display at Sotheby’s in New York. The collection includes rare, handmade and historically significant European pieces, and depictions of actual rail stations, bridges and buildings.
The collector, Jerry Greene, has kept the collection in five basement rooms of his suburban Philadelphia home and hopes a public institution or an individual will acquire and donate the collection to a museum.
