DFW Elite Toy Museum
The DFW Elite Toy Museum is the brainchild of businessman Ron Sturgeon who first started collecting automobile memorabilia over 40 years ago. Ron initially focused on Mercedes toys and then moved on to rare and vintage automobile-themed items such as race cars and scale models. As the years progressed, Ron’s interests expanded to include vintage toys, unique signs, and other rare and historic collectibles. Eventually, the personal collection was so expansive that the idea for the DFW Elite Toy Museum was born.
Today, the DFW Elite Toy Museum has more than 3,000 unique pieces in its collection. Automobile enthusiasts will appreciate the impressive collection of Tippco die cast toys along with a wide array of early tin, wind-up, pressed steel, and other collectibles — including the very rare Eva Braun Mercedes toy. Dog lovers might be interested to hear that the museum is a “dog-friendly” space and currently features an exhibition entitled “Dogs in Art, Toys and Antique” which includes iconic dog-themed paintings and other dog-related memorabilia from around the globe.
