Toys have played an integral part in society. Toys and dolls are among the most complex objects to care for in a museum or personal collection. Toys have been made from a variety of materials such as wood, textiles, cardboard, plastic, metal, glass and ceramics.
Preserve Metal Toys Still in Use:
- Metal corrodes with moisture.
- Bring inside when raining.
- Clean periodically.
- Coat with paste wax.
Dolls, toys, games, and other play things are cared for by objects conservators.
