Scalextric on your lunch? Dublin now has a pop-up TOY museum


Sega Genesis, Scalextric, Subbuteo… it may sounds like we're reading out a Dear Santa letter from 1989, but the reality is far more exciting, and a little more current.

Dublin's Fumbally Exchange is has just launched its pop-up toy museum and exhibition. running from today, March 22 until this Friday, March 25.

The mini-museum features toys and games from the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s, and visitors are encouraged to "get stuck in and play."

So if you fancy yourself a dab hand at the Sega, or just fancy tooling around with a dolls' house or a FisherPrice farm on your lunch break, get down to the Fumbally Exchange at 5 Dame Lane in Dublin 2 between noon and 5.30pm any day this week.

According to Fumbally Exchange founder George Boyle, the exhibition and musuem aim to inspire kids of all ages to get in touch with their imaginative sides – and away from their screens.

"Taking a playful approach and being open to a little mischief-making is a wonderful way to spark inspiration and creativity," he adds.

The exhibition and mini-museum are free – simply show up to check it out. More information on the Fumbally Exchange website here.
