Hands on Experience!
Educationally Stimulating! Great Craic!
The Toy Soldier Factory offers school tours that combine fun and education with a difference all in one location! Europe only Toy Soldier Factory is situation half way between Killarney town and Cork City on the main N22 road only a short distance from Macroom town.
The factory produces hundreds of different black rubber moulds that allows you to cast your own model soldiers, chess sets, animals and other figurines in metal as many times as you wish.
There’s no fake machinery or actors – it’s a REAL working factory, with REAL workers and REAL processes. Our tours give first hand learning experience that includes visual and tactile methods. A student is asked to take part in all the manufacturing processes, vulcanizing, metal spin casting, moulding, blister packing and labelling the Toy Soldier figurines.
A visit to our factory has many benefits to the educational process and can fit into your curriculum in many subjects.
