have you tried contacting the museum of childhood in Bethanl Green, London. They well might have a catalogue or museum shop that stocks toys. There are also working museums like the Black Country Museum in Dudley; Ironbridge in Staffordshire or the museum near Chester le Street in County Durham (name escapes me; something begining with B :o )


Don't forget that the toys we played with when we were young count, sadly, as history; rubik cubes, clackers, (watch your knuckles);Pipa (remember her!!) french skipping ropes, two balls against the wall (oh the days xD ); car boot sales are often a good source for these more modern things.

Hope this helps, have fun.
