5 Things To Do This Weekend in St. Louis 10/28 – 10/30

Thursday October 27, 2016

Happy Friday! It’s time for another fun-filled weekend in St. Louis. If you are still pulling your plans together for the weekend, here are a few suggestions to help.

Toys of the ’50s, ’60 and ’70s Exhibit – October 29

Gumby. Barbie. Slinky. Mr. Potato Head. Wham-O. Spirograph. Hot Wheels. The names of popular toys from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s capture the craziness, the joy, and the sheer fun of being a kid. But beneath those nutty names are rich veins of nostalgia, memory, and history. The stories of the kids who played with these toys, the adults who bought them, the child-rearing experts who judged them, and the people who invented them reflect the rhythms of American life. Experience the toys of their stories through three imagined living rooms that bring the decades back to life
