Calling all Toys…..

The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures, previously the Toy and Miniature Museum of KC, plans to re-open in 2015 with a new ‘look’.  The new lobby will feature a sculpture called the “Toytisserie”, a two-story conveyor belt composed of 48 panels covered in toys, which will stimulate wonder and nostalgia for all!  As you might imagine, LOTS of toys are needed to pull this sculpture off!
