Yexel's Toy Museum: The Big Picture

We actually have a toy museum!  In fact, it's a museum so awesome, my boys (husband included) were geeking out about it days after we went there.  The place just brims of epic proportions.
Don't believe me?  Then prepare for an overload of photographic evidence!!!

Yexel's Toy Museum is a 3-storey child's Dream Come True and an adult's trip to Nostalgia Land --all in lifesize 3D!  It comes with free-standing works of art.

Set-ups that allow you to sit and be part of the toy scenario.

Movie toys that are larger than life.  Definitely a hundred times larger than your average Happy Meal freebie.

Classic toys that take you back to an altered past where you can hobnob with your favorite film, TV show, and video game characters.

Replicas that are hell authentic!  Uber awesome craftsmanship!  Most of which are encased in protective glass.

And, for the easily overwhelmed by big things, gazillions of miniatures.  Sorry, still overwhelming. :P

But what really floors you is this... the Piece de Resistance!

Optimus Prime in actual size!  What.  The.  Fudge.
The room that encases the gargantuan Autobot is filled with the alien robot's deep, dramatic voice delivering his famous closing spiel in the first movie, blasting away in mega speakers.  Talk about ambiance!

Now, you know me --I don't just take our kids to any random place for kicks.  I always make sure they get something out of it.  A lesson, or an inspiration.  Yexel's Toy Museum serves that on a Lego platter.  Yexel isn't just a young man who collects toys for display.  He MAKES toys, too!  A lot of which are the lifesized ones in the museum.  How's that for inspiration?

For P300 a pop, you'll never get a toy-filled experience this huge anywhere.
Yexel's Toy Museum, quietly tucked away at Pilar Village in Las Pinas City, is open to the public Saturdays and Sundays, from 10am to 8pm.  Go big and be there!
