Toy Museum TV


The Toy Museum TV YouTube channel shares the stories of inventors, start-ups, industry experts, and others involved in the toy and game industry.

Created by Marlene Hochman, founder of The Toy Museum of NY, this oral-history project uncovers what it’s like to work in the play industry. Hochman interviews experts who share their experiences about creating, testing, manufacturing, and marketing toys and games. The insights shared in the web series highlight the incredible ingenuity and effort required to develop a new toy or game. The series will appeal to those working in the industry, wanting to break into the industry, as well as to consumers interested in the backstories of toys and games.

There are almost 50 videos currently on Toy Museum TV, with even more to follow.

Discover books, magazines, podcasts, and blogs that celebrate toy history, pop culture, and collecting.
