The article will present the museum project entitled The World of Toys which included the exhibition The Toy Has a Heart. In its recent activities the Ethnographic Museum in Zagreb endeavours to dovetail with all modern museum trends, including the understanding of the role of a museum institution as part and parcel of modern society which can certainly influence its progress. One of the postulates shaping the work of modern museum institutions is the acquisition of objects which can fit into everyday life in a multilayered way. This is certainly the case with the objects included in the new Collection of Children’s Toys and Games. The article analyses the development of the collection from the accessioning of objects into the Museum to their final analysis and recording. Specific objects in the new Collection are also analysed and their substantial value highlighted, and the historical review of the manufacturers’ endeavours to show the long and continuous production of children’s toys worldwide.
