Toy Stories

To prepare for The Power to Play: From Trash to Treasure – a display of toys handmade by children from around the world – we collected stories of toy making from our friends, staff and members of our international community.

Here are the ones chosen to accompany the toys, and to inspire visitors to share their own stories:

What toys do you and your family like to make? Leave us a comment, and stay tuned to find out what our visitors have to say about toys they've made and what they like to make toys from.

At Thanksgiving I like to remind myself that "enough is a lot" The Power To Play collection and the memories it evokes of making our own playthings really illustrates that idea. We have so much. Happy Thanksgiving. - Janice

When I was a child, we loved to make toy boats from little pieces of wood.
