Video: Peeking at the pixies

Kate Moyle (2) takes a peek at one of the Pixie Town displays at Toitu Otago Settlers Museum.

Pixie Town opened to the public this week and includes a newly-restored monkey display, plenty of pixie and Santa dress-up options and, from today until Christmas Eve, Santa Claus.

Curator Peter Read said 13 units from the former DIC department store's Pixie Town display were held by the museum with two still to be restored.

They were originally part of displays which toured the country from the 1930s until the late 1970s when the oil shocks hit and it became unaffordable.

They were then sold to the DIC. Pixie Town is open until January 6.
