Yexel's Toy Museum

The Simpson's Family

     We're back! We missed blogging! Been busy these past few weeks preparing for our next trip. :p We still have a backlog blog for our Hong Kong trip last August. Hopefully, we can do it in the coming days. :p

     And to kick off our return, we will be featuring Yexel's Toy Museum. We learned about this toy museum from Jamich's facebook account and since then, we wanted to go there. We thought we won't be able to go since there was a typhoon (Ofel) two days prior to our scheduled trip. But luckily, the rain stopped the day we went to the Museum.

     Since we will be going there via public transportation, we texted the Toy Museum and they replied promptly. Here's what we did. We met up at Starmall Alabang and from there rode the jeep to SM Southmall. We then took the tricycle to Pilar Village and stopped right in front of the museum.


     Yexel's Toy Museum opened last August 26. Visitors are welcome to come and see Mr. Yexel Sebastian's house/museum every weekend from 10am to 6pm. Yexel, a former member of Streetboys and a toy collector shares his amazing assortment of unique, cool and colorful toys to kids as well as to kids at heart like us. Hehe! :p

     We were greeted with the Simpson's Family once we entered the house-turned museum. The facade is still under construction -- can't wait to see how it's gonna look! We paid the 300 peso entrance fee and  asked the receptionist if we can leave our bags so that we can concentrate on taking pictures, to which she gladly agreed.

     Let's start the tour.. :)

Small to big!

     The first part of the museum is a display cabinet full of miniature figures of our well-loved characters from our childhood. Displays include Mario Bros., Doraemon, a lot of Disney characters like Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Beauty & the Beast, the Little Mermaid and a lot more! These brought so much fun memories from when we were younger! :)
