MiSci Toy Exhibit shows toy-making process

Local

The Museum of Innovation and Science revamped their Toy Exhibit, “Inside Story,” where you can witness outside of the box creations of toys and gadgets you use daily. 

There’s 12 different hands-on interaction stations, which display the simple, yet common mechanisms found in toys.

“Just an exhibit about how toys work and all the inner workings are. From circuits, gears, pulley’s, linkages to cams and how they all come together to make your favorite toys,” Chris Hunter, Curator of MiSci said.

While this is exhibit is a yearly tradition, they add something new every year to change things up, so they’ve added the 20th Century Toy Chest, which showcases collectibles from the past 100 years.

“Great science fiction toys. We have Lost in Space, Star Trek and in another cabinet we have Buck Rodgers” Hunter said. “Most of the toys in exhibit came from Daniel Fay, of Sassy’s Satellite Pop Culture Gallery. He’s a local toy collector and he offered to curate an exhibit of his collection for us for free.”
