Anyway, this was a dual-purpose visit because The Collective was also on my list of places to I wanted to visit in my hometown. They have had plenty of cool exhibitions in the past but because of my general lack of organisation, this is the first one I’ve actually gotten to.
I must be honest, it is smaller than I expected but so light and airy that you don’t really notice the size. It’s also in an old building so it has that look about it and beautiful wooden floors. I loved the artwork on the walls outside:
The actual exhibition made my heart happy. I would have bought many, many toys if I hadn’t been on a budget. The bulk of the toys were plush which was fine by me. Here's a few pics:

Oh So Plush by Lanel Janse Van Vuuren*swoon*
These cuties called Qoopey by Reghardt Grobbelaar
And then there were some paper toys. I love paper toys!!
Sadly I can’t remember who was responsible for these ones and I can't read the writing in the photo. Serves me right for forgetting to take note!
My favourites? This super cool bat by Angelica Pelati and the minty green dude from Oh So Plush:
