Toy Theater Company
Toy Theatre Company
with Gigi and Glen Sandberg

An American toy theater company.
This site has lots of good information on toy theater!

We are very sad to say that Gigi Sandberg
passed away February 4, 2009.
We never had the opportunity to know her in person, but enjoyed knowing her by emails, phone, and by her exhibit in Florida and their web site. Her enthusiasm for model theater inspired many of us, and we appreciate the Sandbergs' promotion of this art form.
