Penang Toy Museum

Penang's Toy Museum is said to be the biggest toy museum in the world in terms of having the most collections. We drove all the way up to Batu Ferringhi to search for the place. It's quite isolated, not easily spotted. When we got there, we were hesitated to go in as we were not sure whether we were at the correct place and there wasn't any visitors. We could only confirm when we approached the entrance. The entrance fee for Malaysians adults was RM15/pax. Quite expensive and what we got was just "tonnes" of pictures. Cannot feel or touch as the toys were enclosed in frames. As you can see below, there are reflections when I tried to snapshot. We were quite disappointed when we entered. The toys were just arranged and racked up in a couple of rows. I was expecting more. Maybe more "classy" or what? Nevertheless, they have quite a collection of toys which I think should cost alot. That is why they are enclosed in frames. TO AVOID THEFT!

All the huge toys~~ I wonder how much investment did they put in to get all these~ :-?

Look how big they are!
Really-looking heads

Disney Characters:

SIMBA!! And also Garfield, Ice Age, Popeye, Winnie the Pooh, Snoopy etc.
 Some other toys:
Army troops
Final Fantasy
Creepy toys
Harry Potter
Elvis, Batman, Spiderman and China dolls
Lord of the Ring
Pirates of the Caribbean :ar! 
One Piece!
So, that's the end of it!

To avoid reflection from picture taking. All you need is to buy a polarized filter that can screw on top of your camre's lens which cost you less than RM50 only. Polarized filter has been used by amateur photographer to take pictures from museum collection through glass boxes to prevent reflection for more than half century
