A celebration of cuddly toys and their stories will be held in a Great Yarmouth museum from Friday until September 5.

The toy room at Elizabethan House Museum has been taken over by cuddly toys for the Creature Comforts exhibition.

This family friendly exhibition celebrates beloved cuddly toys; from highly collectable Steiff bears to threadbare bunnies.

Many of the toys in Creature Comforts have been lent by local museum supporters especially for this exhibition.

This has allowed the museum to bring together 90 years of soft toy history and allowed contributors to share childhood memories of life with their fluffy-coated companion.
