The Gift of Play: Toys of Yesterday

Toys are very appealing—they can be colourful, whimsical, and intriguing. They are fun to play with as kids, and enjoyable to remember as adults. But toys also tell us stories about how childhood and play have changed over the years. Homemade or store bought, educational or purely for fun, toys and other recreational pastimes tell the stories of children growing up in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Our latest feature exhibition is perfectly timed for the holiday season.  Visit the Oshawa Museum and check out The Gift of Play: Toys of Yesterday.

Here is a sneak peak at the exhibit.
