Who of us in early childhood did not play with a plastic or rubber squeaky toy? Ranging from Mickey Mouse to Hello Kitty, and from Miffy to the Teletubbies, they all squeaked! Populating this exhibition are ducks, giraffes and other recognizable or anonymous figures, confronting us with sometimes surprising traditions, fashion and designs from the previous century.
The exhibition spans a long period, from the 1930s when the first rubber squeaky toys appeared, to the present, marked as it is by the worldwide industrial production of the United States, the Soviet Union, Europe and Japan.
A light-hearted and interactive line-up for children, interesting information and rare items for the connoisseur, and pleasant childhood memories for all!
