Playing in the Past: Historic Toys and Pastimes

Playing in the Past: Historic Toys and Pastimes

Sponsored by the Phyllis and Dennis Washington Foundation this exhibit shares the joys of childhood. Toys can be central to childhood and imaginations.  Homemade, purchased or handed down, however toys come to us, they bring joy, inspire creativity and make memories that last a lifetime!  Many toys give children a chance to practice adult life in miniature, others are educational and some are just whimsical and fun.  Did you have any of these toys as a child?  Are toys like these still played with today?
