On view at Bard Graduate Center
from September 18, 2015 through January 17, 2016.
There are over 300 “playthings” that date from the 16th to the early 21st centuries. These wonderful toys range from mini vehicles of all kinds from old fashion wagons, trains and sailboats, to rocket ship. There are also animals, weapons, games, and dollhouses. You can see items that were mass produced but many others are one-of-a-kind wonders.
“Although Germany, Japan, and the United States have historically produced and exported the largest numbers of toys worldwide, Sweden has a long and enduring tradition of designing and making wooden toys—from the simplest handmade plaything to more sophisticated forms.” – from BGC press Release
