Vintage toys fill up East Brunswick exhibit

January 9, 2012 by  

Toy fanatics will be pleased to learn that there are antique, collectible toys and ornaments on display at the East Brunswick Museum. This exhibit will be only display until January the 10th, 2012.

The display features toys that were popular 20 years ago. Some examples of items on exhibit include wooden blocks and Raggedy Ann dolls. Staff at the museum say that the display is designed to elicit fond memories of past holidays.

New Brunswick Museum has also decided to honor the military. There is currently a patriotic themed tree on display. The purpose of this exhibit is to honor veterans and acknowledge their sacrifices.

While displays like this are worth seeing, small museums tend to have low numbers of visitors. This is often because these museums do not market their exhibits. This occurs for a few different reasons. Firstly small tourist attractions have a minimal budget for marketing and advertising. It is also worth noting that sometimes staff do not understand the value of a good marketing campaign.

Small organizations like this one could benefit from using simple printing services. Creating brochures and flyers is an affordable way to get word out about local events. The toy exhibit would be ideal for both children and adults. The museum could hand brochures out at schools, work places and retirement communities. At the end of the day, people cannot attend events if they do not know about them. Simple tactics such as creating flyers can increase awareness amongst local residents.
