Fun Ho! National Toy Museum

The Fun Ho! Clown in a circle became the well known logo representing the Fun Ho! National Toy Museum, and was endeared to many toy collectors. It decorated the Fun Ho! Repro books, in either maroon or blue, as well as being a very acceptable cap badge.

Large Fire Engine

The number 105 Fire Engine was chosen as the logo for the Fun Ho! National Toy Museum when it changed hands in 1999, and was re-fitted and displayed at the new Rata Street premises in Inglewood.

Co-incidentally, the number 161 Fire Engine was used on a 40 cent postage stamp to celebrate Kiwiana, which happily overlapped the opening of the new museum in early 2000. This was very appropriate, as No. 161 and No. 105 fire engines are very similar.
