Looking for a fun design-oriented free family event during the holiday season?
The Constructing Play: Classic Building Toys Exhibition explores the history of building toys and the educational foundation which underlies their creation. Over 60 historic building toys, selected from the Philadelphia Center for Architecture’s collection and spanning the past 175 years will be on display from November 29th through January 31st.
Visitors will learn about their favorite toys, from Tinker Toys to LEGO, Erector Sets to K’Nex. They will also learn how structures stay up, discover famous local buildings in miniature, and see how toy designers took inspiration from the past to create today’s most popular building toys.
And the exhibition includes special fun hands-on Family Workshops and Parent Dialogues on how to make the most out of the toys we provide to children. Registration required: http://PhiladelphiaCFA.TicketLeap.com
