Detroit Toy Stories

I  love the Detroit Historical Museum.  I love the look.  The smell.  The exhibits. The memories.  The souvenir shop.  Everything.  When I go there, I feel like I’m going home.

Starting this weekend, the museum is taking the wraps off a new exhibit called “Detroit Toy Stories.”  It’s full of all the stuff kids around here have been playing with for years.  Everything from those antique wind-up mechanical toys to Star Wars figures.

Ok, I admit it.  The Barbie Dolls are my favorites at this exhibit.  But I was also intrigued by the Denny McLain magnetic baseball game, and the Ballistic Missile.  (The box says “completely safe.”)

I think you AND YOUR KIDS will love seeing this stuff.

Best of all, admission is FREE this weekend at the Detroit Historical Museum.

Have fun.

I snapped some pictures of the exhibit as it was being assembled.  If you’d like to check ’em out, click on
