"A Child's Delight" is the new exhibition at the Doll Museum at The Old Rectory, a vision of Christmas toys and dolls focusing on the early 20th century.

Trains, a drum, nine pins and a horse-drawn cart are accompanied by stuffed animals, and around a feather tree decorated with antique ornaments are gathered Schoenhut dolls, an iron stove and a tea set.

These Schoenhut and Gottschalk dollhouses, along with two other locally made houses, parallel the early 1900s flavor of the dolls and toys.

"A Child's Delight" will run through spring 2014. The museum also features a permanent exhibit of a distinguished collection of 19th and 20th century dolls.

It is open from 1 to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m to 2 p.m. Saturday. Admission is $1.50 for a self-guided tour. Group tours, including tours for Girl Scouts or children, also are available. Tours can be scheduled for weekdays or the weekend. The Doll Museum at the Old Rectory is at 50 W. New England Ave.

Worthington residents who have photos of childhood Christmases or holiday celebrations are encouraged to allow the Doll House to scan them in order to document life in the community. Call 614-885-1247 for more information.
