Oshkosh display shows the joys of kids’ toys
August 31, 2012 by Sarah
An interactive display entitled ‘Toys – The Inside Story’ has been available at the Oshkosh Public Museum located at 1331 Algoma Blvd. in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, which is about 20 miles from North Fond du Lac . Time is running out, however, for those who have yet to catch a glimpse of it.
This play-world offers fun for the whole family. Some of the toys on display include Elmo, Hokey Pokey, and Jack-in-the-Box. Designed to let the audience take a peek inside at the magical workings that make these special toys perform, families will learn about all types of gismos and gadgets, with around 12 hands-on play-stations that function the way the toys work.
A gigantic Etch-A-Sketch will let children create incredible patterns and pictures. There is a circuit challenge for the older children that will enable them to see if they can make it through without lighting the ‘Operation’. These memorable toys from yesteryear will provide hours of amusement for the entire family. There are a number of doodads, circuits, linkages, and gears to tantalize the adult as well. Sponsored by museum members and aided by generous donations from supporters, this is a travelling exhibition, so those outside of Wisconsin may find that it will make a stop by their hometown.
Poster printing and flyer printing may have been the choice of advertisers to promote this exhibition to families throughout the Wisconsin area. Admission is $7 per adult and $3.50 per child, children under 6 visit free. To learn more about this event, which moves on in just over a week’s time on September 9, please visit the Oshkosh Public Museum website or call the museum at 920-236-5799.
