DOLL AND TOY MUSEUM OF NYC
The DOLL AND TOY MUSEUM OF NYC caters to historically minded children, toy collectors, and nostalgic others charmed by antique amusements.

Charity events to come include "Certified Dollogist" Doll Doctor Kathleen offering free broken doll exams and teddy-bear-making demos.
