About The Village

The Totten’s Dickens Magical Village is a one-of-a kind installation in the B-Tower Atrium at Children’s Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre.  Donated to Children’s Health Foundation during their 100th anniversary in 2022, the collection contains over 70 incredible figurines of buildings and countless accessories!

Fourty-five years ago Ross and Joan’s collection contained 3 simple pieces. Now the Village has grown with spectacular treasures representing the Totten’s family’s life.

The incredible figurines were something their family could always share in, buying smaller and more affordable pieces or bigger and more detailed ones for holidays and special occasions.  Each is a little piece of Totten family heritage.

“We never failed to get lost in the magic of it,” says the couple. 

The magic is what they want to share with families at Children’s Hospital.
