Outside the World’s Largest Toy Museum, two larger-than-life toy soldiers flank the entranceway, which leads to a collection of more than one million toys from the 19th century to today. The proprietors have neatly organized their eclectic memorabilia on wooden and glass shelving, and bigger items hang from the ceilings. Visitors experience fascination and nostalgia while browsing antique tin fire trucks, a 1959 British Embassy Rolls-Royce, superhero action figures, and retro lunchboxes, a more compact version of the dinner trays kids used to carry to school.
The Harold Bell Wright Museum is a special area of the World’s Largest Toy Museum dedicated to a local hero and scribe. Learn about the author’s life and dedication to penning articles, screenplays, and novels, including 1907’s The Shepherd of the Hills. This story, which was once a staple of required classroom reading, helped make Branson, Missouri, a popular spot for tourists.
Couples, families, and children assume positions amid one of eight sets including a Wild West?inspired saloon, a log cabin, or a Victorian parlor and pose for experienced professional photographers at Three Sisters Old Time Photos. Women posing for boudoir photos may also opt for the sets, or more traditional boudoir set-ups, such as near a neutral window with drapes. The photographers have over 30 years of combined experience and have snapped shots for brand names such as Reebok. Black-and-white, sepia, and color prints are ready mere minutes after the session.
Veteran shutterbug Cara Dee Stucke honed her artistic eye in 27 years in the portrait-photography field and today attends annual workshops and seminars to stay abreast of modern techniques. Cara Dee snaps elegant, contemporary shots of weddings, families, and high-school seniors using high-tech equipment such as 21.5-megapixel sensor cameras and light-bending hand claps. Before each photo session, the creative team can proffer wardrobe and makeup consultations, taking time to heed customers' requests for the overall vibe of the shoot.
On-location sessions voyage into the tranquil confines of nature for a romantic ambiance, and shoots in the CaraDee Photography studio allow for edgy, urban-theme photos with self-provided props. Images make their way onto prints of all sizes, emblazoned on top-quality metallic or lustrous papers, custom-created books, and videos replete with music.
Customers bring in T-shirts, backpacks, jackets, and other threadable goods to be emblazoned with images ranging from cawing toucans and falling maple leaves to pastoral landscapes and business logos. Identify a polo or baby blanket with its owner's name ($4–$6 per item) in one of nearly 50 fonts, or adorn the entire back of a denim jacket with a majestic elk ($16). If clients are unsatisfied with the overall logo selection, Designer Threads also offers free quotes to have a custom logo digitized for the project. Most items take about a week to complete.
