Toy & Action Figure Museum
The museum got its start in 2000 during a city-wide process called Vision 2010. In a series of meetings, local citizens identified goals they would like the community to reach in the next ten years. Many things were discussed … Among them the town wanted unique attractions that would help to make Pauls Valley a destination city.
With the help of local artist and toy designer (& collector) Kevin Stark, a board was formed to start working on the world’s first Toy & Action Figure Museum!
From concept through manufacturing, the museum has exhibits on the creation of action figures. Visitors can get a behind-the-scenes look at how toys are made. It is the goal of the museum to pay tribute to the designers, sculptors, and toy companies that have turned action figures from a child’s plaything to a work of art.
The Toy & Action Figure Museum is also the home of the Oklahoma Cartoonists Collection, put together by writer Michael Vance from Tulsa. This exhibit features published artists and writers in the comics field from Oklahoma. It features such well-known creators as Chester Gould of Dick Tracy fame, as well as Jack and Carole Bender, who currently work on Alley Oop.
