Tim the Toyman

Tim the toyman

The greatest Toy collection – probably!

The most wonderful collection of toys that would grace any museum – love it.

A collector who lives with thousands of toys crammed into suitcases in his London flat has become a Youtube hit.

Tim Rowett – “Tim the Toyman” as he calls himself – has been collecting toys for fifty years. He used to be a children’s entertainer, and would buy new toys every year for his performances. Now retired, he brings puppets, games, cards and more back to life on ‘YouTube’s¬†‘Grand Illusions’¬†channel.

His demonstrations allow thousands of people to re-discover the “wow” factor of old toys.
