Toys in Time:
Once in a while I feel the need to escape the madness of modern life and find peace of mind amongst old toys.
ACME Toy Company in Erdington is one such haven of vintage calm. The shop has a classic TARDIS design... small on the outside and surprisingly big on the inside... and more importantly for me, it's crammed wall-to-wall with old toys from bygone times.
The TARDIS effect doesn't just stop with the dimensions of the shop, but also extends to its ability to transform a ten minute visit, into two hours worth of nostalgic chat with the keepers of this cosy vintage toy time capsule.
Thanks to Pete and Colin for allowing me to snap and share a few pics of this rare old place.
