Take a moment to look through the ⬇ Complete Toy Museum User Guide (22.8 MB) and see the full list of over 300 musical toys we sampled to bring you this massive collection, weighing in at nearly 20 GB!
Quite possibly the craziest sound library ever conceived - literally hundreds of musical toys meticulously multi-sampled at 24/96 with world-class equipment. Everything from toy pianos, guitars, bells, xylophones, baby drums, melodicas, blow toys, music boxes and more - nearly 13 GB in all. We even went to the museum (Musée des Art Décoratifs) and sampled their collection of antique musical artifacts!
97 vintage music toys including Style-o-phones, speech and development toys, organs, music toys, mini samplers, drum machines and more - meticulously captured at 24/96. We sampled every odd sonic blip and speaker glitch these gizmos could make resulting in a massive 7 GB library of over 1000 presets (more than 14,000 samples in total) ready to add life and variety to all of your productions.
We secured access to a number of private collections of these musical gems, including a famous museum, Musée des Art Décoratifs which shares space with the Louvre in Paris, in order to create the de facto acoustic toy sound library.
No library in the world has such a wide range of acoustic toys - literally hundreds of musical toys, in every conceivable category. The value of this library isn't just in numbers, great effort was made to capture the authentic sound and detail of each instrument. We meticulously multi-sampled everything at 24 bit / 96 kHz with world-class microphones and Class-A equipment. We even recorded full phrases from the music boxes and loops with the baby drums and toy guitars.
Includes Toy Pianos, Musical Boxes, Ancient Automates, Wood and Metal Xylophones, Mini Bells, Baby Drums, Toy Guitars, Ukulele, Melodicas, Small Accordions, Harmonicas, Percussive, Funny Horns, Musical Gadgets, Musical Cubes, Plastic Tubes and much, much more.

In line with our work on the Acoustic Toy Museum, we set out to create another playful retrospective, this time focusing on battery-powered contraptions. We found some 97 different toys dating back to the 60's, some with truly incredible character.
The sounds of playful blips and cheap plastic come alive through our meticulous process; over 14,000 samples at 24 bit / 96kHz with many instruments multi-sampled with release samples for each note, rhythms converted into sliced loops, GM drum kits, and FX and speech voices all carefully organized for easy navigation.
We sampled everything. Every note, every key press, every click, resulting in a truly comprehensive and highly detailed library of classics, unmatched in the industry.
These toys are particularly designed for kids, even if most of the time,
elders do play with them
Sometimes, real advanced keyboards are hidden behind the word "toys",
whosse technique nonchallenges some tedious semi-pro keyboards
Especially designed for drums and FX, whether they re pure sound FX machines or
drum machines. That's the rythm of the household
Seriously impressing for their days and intent, these keyboards came with a microphone
and/or RCA sampling facility
More toy than musical, most of the time with no keyboards,
some of them hide very surprising features ...
THE electric organs that have been scattered about in youngsters' bedrooms for
the last 40 years
It's not they sound poorly, it's not they were too wuickly designed, it's not we don't
love them, it's just ... totally silly!
These keyboards were designed to be "child-fingers-compliant". Some machines from
this category became iconic
These are talkative toys, whether it's for learning spelling, just for fun or for making music
One of the best and oldest kind of musical toys ever designed
