Toys of the '50s, '60s and '70s at the History Center


Toys link us to the past, they connect us personally to memories, and collectively bond us to the time and place they were created. In reflecting on our childhood and the toys that were formative to our developing years, we often find that what we played with tells a larger story thanjust our own. Toys reflect culture-their form, their function, and their design serve as material evidence ofthe culture in which they were created.
