Nostalgic exhibit of toys at The Braid

Inspired by the festive season, Mid-Antrim Museum at The Braid has created an exhibition celebrating vintage toys from the 1950s on loan from a local collector.

Entitled ‘No Batteries Required’, the exhibition features toys which will attract and entice children as well as promote nostalgia amongst the older generation.

Kevin Timoney is a Ballymena toy enthusiast who has been avidly collecting Tri-Ang and MOBO toys for over twenty years.

The exhibition contains a classic Tri-Ang tractor and pedal cars from his collection as well as charming MOBO Bronco horses.

The museum will also be showing its popular collection of lino-cut prints created by pupils from Tullygrawley Public Elementary School in Cullybackey, in its exhibition ‘From Tullygrawley School: Creativity in a Country Classroom’.

The exhibitions are currently on display in The Braid until January 6.  The museum is open Monday-Friday 10am-5pm and Saturday from 10am-4pm. Admission is free.
