Children’s Toy Wall in Eltham (Taranaki)  ….. the toy wall on Bridger Lane is said to have started when Fay Young found a toy car outside her property. She put the car on her garden wall so it might be found by its owner, it was never claimed.

Fay embedded the car into the wall and it started a toy story in cement that grew as children donated toys for the collection. Fay passed away in 2000, she generously gifted her property to the local community. The wall remains as a tribute to Fay and it was given a spruce up earlier this year.

  1. hi, I’m just wondering if you could tell me the address of the Ross license plate fence? thanks in advance

    kind regards

    • Hi Leanne
      The fence was at the intersection of Moorhouse and Aylmer Streets. If you drive to Ross on the Harihari Highway which becomes Moorhouse Street the fence will be right in front of you. There were also number plates on Roddy Nugget Cafe on Moorhouse Street. Happy travels.
