The collection of toys in The William E. Swigart, Jr. Automobile Museum includes those modeled after the exciting vehicles of the early 20th century. Cast iron fire trucks, horse-drawn pumpers, and other wheeled toys made by manufacturers such as Hubley and Buddy L; Lionel trains; and pedal cars with a silhouette similar to the antique cars in the museum are on display throughout the building.
One corner is devoted to a collection of vintage Fisher-Price toys, including classics such as the Snoopy Sniffer and the Corn Popper push toy. Everything from wooden pull toys offered during the company's first year (1931) to toys popular a decade ago brings to mind the pleasure of these childhood favorites.
Other toys on display throughout the museum include mechanical tin plate toys, dolls, hobby horses, and much more.
