Exhibit Opening: Toy Boom! Toys from the 1950s and ’60s

Friday, Oct. 4, 9 a.m. 

Children of the baby-boomer era (post World War II–mid-1960s) grew up in a time of dramatic change.

Explore these years of energy, ambition, and an evolving world through the toys they played with, and discover how the growing popularity of a relatively new medium, television—and its targeted programs and advertisements—also impacted, and reflected, their lives.
