CHILDREN playing with their new toys will be able to see what Santa used to deliver with the biggest toy fair in Yorkshire tomorrow.

The fair at Doncaster Racecourse will feature toys and models from the 1920s right through to the present day, including a rare Lady Penelope fluorescent pink car worth about £1,000.

Organiser Michael Bishop said: “It’s fascinating to see how some toys have come and gone over the years and others, like Lego and train sets, seem to endure and are still being given as Christmas presents.

“For mums and dads and grandparents there will be toys from their childhood. For the children, as well as seeing what Santa used to bring, there will be the new toys that they know and love.”

The fair runs from 10.30am to 3.30pm and admission is £3.50 adults, £2.50 concessions and £1 for under-16s.
