White Rock Museum - 100 years of toys

Post by chump »

Whether a yoyo, Slinky, Etch-a-Sketch, or XBox, toys have existed for centuries as an essential part of any child’s life. Play teaches everything from motor skills, to engineering, to everyday tasks. Toys allow us to develop our imaginations and creativity, to explore, discover and learn from the world around us.

Join us from June 6th to October 12th as we celebrate some of the most popular toys of the last 100 years. Follow the evolution of handcrafted wood and ceramic toys to factory produced plastics and computer microprocessing.

The exhibit features toy re-creations from members of the Vancouver Lego Club, historic toys from the Museum's collection, as well as ten interactive toy stations and balloon sculptures by Korki the Clown, Smile Ambassador of the Semiahmoo Peninsula. Make sure to grab your play passport on your way in and test out all the stations in our gallery for a chance to win a 2015 Easy Bake Oven!

With thanks to our exhibit sponsors and partners: City of White Rock, Peace Arch News (2015 Print Media Sponsor), Charlie Don't Surf Restaurant (2015 Reception Sponsor) and Bricks 4 Kidz – Surrey/Delta. Exhibit artwork provided by: Monica Blachnio.
