HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF GLASTONBURY UNVEILED NEW TOY EXHIBIT


Historical Toys Exhibit – Perfect to bring the children to see and will surely bring back your childhood memories


What is one of the main things you think about this winter and holiday season? Friends, family, gift giving and receiving, holiday cheer, holiday treats and TOYS of course!  The Historical Society of Glastonbury Museum on the Green’s newest exhibit is holiday themed and features historic and vintage toys.  The oldest toy featured in the exhibit is from circa 1850 and is a handmade chair someone made for their daughter out of twigs.  The “newest” toy, a Chinese Checker Board, dates from 1955.  Pickup sticks, tinker toys, paper dolls, books, and toy cars are just a few of the neat toys on display for a limited time.  This exhibit features all sorts of toys which children may have received for holiday gifts.  This is a perfect holiday break activity to bring the children to see and a great display for you to visit and reminisce.


All ages welcome.  Admission to Museum on the Green is FREE; donations are always welcome.  Phone 860-633-6890 or visit www.hsgct.org for events and more information.
