My favorite of all the museums of London is the V & A Museum of Childhood. They have a collection of 8,000 dolls, Britain's biggest doll house collection with very old pieces and many other interesting exhibitions about games, the history of childhood and many others.
It is just wonderful to see all those things, not only toys but old objects, photos, information... you will also like it! :)
