Vin­tage toys on dis­play at Beaulne

Stanstead Journal - - LENOXVILLE NEWS - Coat­i­cook

The Beaulne Mu­seum in Coat­i­cook is pleased to present the ex­hi­bi­tion Sou­venirs... Sou­venirs! Child­hood Toys. The Christ­mas sea­son has al­ways been marked by, among other things, the pur­chase of gifts and toys. Orig­i­nally in­tended for chil­dren and an­i­mals, toys have ex­isted for eons. In an­cient civ­i­liza­tions, peo­ple man­u­fac­tured toys with ma­te­ri­als or found ob­jects in na­ture.

This ex­hi­bi­tion aims to mea­sure the progress and es­pe­cially rekin­dle child­hood mem­o­ries in older vis­i­tors while al­low­ing younger gen­er­a­tions to dis­cover and com­pare th­ese older toys: Dolls and an­i­mals, toy con­struc­tion ve­hi­cles, puzzles, etc. - a va­ri­ety of toys that nur­ture the imag­i­na­tion of chil­dren and even adults.

The con­tent of the ex­hi­bi­tion con­sists en­tirely of ob­jects from the Beaulne Mu­seum’s col­lec­tion of toys. This ex­hi­bi­tion runs un­til Jan­uary 27th, 2013.
