Located at 268 Moo 3, Tambon Pa Daet, the Local Thai Toys was founded and run by the elderly of Ban Pa Daet. With their insightful indigenous knowledge, they produce folk toys for the new generation. The Museum houses both local and new toys made from wood, coconut shell, or bamboo – with a name, description and directions on how to play. All objects on display can be touched and played with. Each one has an implicit meaning, reflecting life, culture and social changes. Some of the examples are different types of yoyo, various animal shapes on wheels, and puppets. A souvenir shop selling local products is also available.
Open daily from 09.00 a.m. – 04.00 p.m.
Admission is free.
