Thirty thousand toys at home

Alberto Perez has been collecting toys of all kinds for 70 years.

Stories of people

 Alberto Perez  is unborn because of toys. But he's not a child: he's 78 years old.

In a shed next to his house, in Rio Tercero (Córdoba), he treasures more than 30,000 pieces, of all kinds and of multiple eras. The oldest date back to 1890, as described.

He says he started with his first toy at age 8, when he received a package with a truck, sent by President Juan Domingo Perón. As usual, it was a response to a letter he had sent him from his fist and letter. The passion for bringing them together never stopped: Perez came to buy them from plums to collectors from abroad.

Today she confesses that she dreams of having a museum, open to the public. Remember that the time that this collection demanded is for “a lifetime.”
