Toys, Inc. / Long-term Exhibit

Toy production mirrors the innovations, triumphs, and conflicts of a swiftly changing world. Evolving over the last 200 years from small shops to enormous corporations, toy making is now an 84-billion-dollar global industry. Competition for resources, political tensions and conflicts, skilled workers, and the impact of changing technology greatly influences how and where toys are made. Toys, Inc examines the beginning of the toy industry from cottage industry in Germany to the modern era, and all that happened in between.
