Fun Ho! national toy museum

Fun Ho! cast-aluminium toys were made in Inglewood by the Underwood Engineering Company from 1947 to 1982. Former Underwood employees Barry and Phyllis Young opened a Fun Ho! museum in the town in 1990. In 2009 a foundry attached to the museum produced short runs of many of the Fun Ho! models.
