Mobo Toy Factory: the way we had fun
Called Mobo and made in Erith, they were no ordinary toys. The Mobo Bronco, Night Rider and Toy-Toise were stars in a whole stable of mobile toys. Push cars soon followed. Kids across the UK and in the US loved them, making their creator, David Sebel, a British success story in the 1950s and early 60s. This exhibition tells the remarkable story of Erith's toy factory.

The Mobo Toy Factory exhibition is located in the historic house. Entrance is included in the admission ticket to the house. The exhibition is open every day from 10am – 5pm (last admission 4.30pm).

Exhibition events:
October 4, 2pm – 4pm
