About Before the Digital Age 20th Century Toys...Before the days of X-Box, Play Station, and the App Store there were non-virtual toys and games that captured the imagination of 20th century children. The toy industry of the 20th century was influenced by modernity, the space age, comic books, and television to name only a few. The toys on exhibit were made between the 1920s to the 1970s. Many are not politically correct (actually by todays standard are offensive), many would never pass the American Society for Materials and Testing safety standards. Nevertheless, this collection of toys conveys a strong view of who we were and what we thought of as conventional even important, to the point of trusting them to the hands and minds of our children.
