If you’ve only travelled to see Sydney for the Opera House why not seeing the other parts of Australia like the one in Adelaide. There are some interesting sights you’ll be interested to make the visit. One such place is the Toy Factory and as its rich history has been known it became a popular place to see for the Big Rocking Horse.
The giant rocking horse was designed by David McIntosh and it has become one of the tourist destinations to see the 18 meters tall children’s oversized toy that weighs 25 tons. The wildlife too has become part of the Toy Factory experience where you can feed the furry creatures in the caged area where you can follow a path where to see them. But what makes this place for those into old school wooden toys is the Toy Factory itself.
They have the wooden toys that you might not see anywhere else, and as a country like Australia who supports their own they also produce their own plush toys based on the furry creatures and marsupials that inhabit their country. There are also collectibles and novelty items that’s unique on their own that you might not find in downtown Adelaide if you’re hoping to find them outside the Toy Factory, but if you’re already there get them already as gifts and souvenirs to your friends and love ones.
