As the Christmas decorations begin to spring up all around town, those familiar carols fill the radio airways and classic television specials play on televisions across the country, one thing is certain to be on the minds of little ones everywhere: toys.
What a perfect time to take them to the World’s Largest Toy Museum in Branson, where they’ll be surrounded by toys of yesteryear and today. Maybe they’ll even get some inspiration for their Christmas lists (if they haven’t already been exceptionally inspired to fill pages with gift suggestions).
The World’s Largest Toy Museum is conveniently located right off the strip just down the street from the Mickey Gilley Theatre and the Hughes Brothers Theater and serves as a home for thousands of toys ranging from action figures, antique trains, dolls, puppets, old-fashioned board games and so much more.
All you parents out there will love it just as much as your kids do because as soon as you step through those doors you’ll be overwhelmed with the memories of the nostalgic toys that line the walls and remind you of the careless days of your childhood.
This holiday season, the World’s Largest Toy Museum has also teamed up with the Stained Glass Theatre in Ozark to present “Toys of War,” a musical about the life of toy maker A.C. Gilbert who co-founded the A.C. Gilbert Company and developed the Erector Set, a popular construction toy in 1913 and many chemistry sets and microscope sets for children.
Several of his original toys will be on display in conjunction at the Stained Glass Theatre, generously provided by the World’s Largest Toy Museum.

“Toys of War” will be showing at the Stained Glass Theatre until December 20. For showtimes or tickets visit www.sgtheatre.com.
