More information from organisers:

The display will look at the most exciting new toys to come to the market throughout the 20th Century – those at the top of every child’s Christmas list. It will also comment on returning trends and popularities such as the Furby, Barbie, Lego and Rubik’s, which have ranked high on the top selling toys lists on many occasions throughout the last few decades. The theme of nostalgia runs throughout the display, giving visitors the opportunity to reminisce about Christmas’s past in a light-hearted manner.

Star objects in the new display will include top Christmas toys of each decade.

1970s –  Star Wars (Kenner action figures) and Simon

1980s –  The Rubik’s Cube and Atari Video Computer System.

1990s –  Tamagotchi and Furby

2000s –  Bratz and Toy Story

2010s –  Disney’s Frozen and L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls

Further back in time, there are toy classics such as the Hornby Train set, Mattel’s Barbie and Transformers.

There will also be special Christmas activities for children, including make-and-take activities such as snowflake making and colouring pages.
