- Exhibit will run from May 23 to June 5, free admission
Sun Plaza invites Bucharesters to a journey in the world of toys of yore. More than 500 toys from 1930-1980, collected by the Toy Museum Association, will be exhibited at the commercial centre from May 23 to June 5.
The Romanian Barbie doll, rubber figurines and animals, Donald Duck, the ‘Pacalici’ or ‘Nu te supara frate’ boardgames, toy cars, metal tractors and motorcycles, the Titirobil and the spinning top, all will be exhibited at Sun Plaza. The toys were bought and collected from all parts of Romania, by the Toy Museum Association, in the last 40 years.
“We wanted to celebrate Children’s Day a bit differently. Each exhibited toy has stirred emotions and joy in the soul of children at one point. It’s an opportunity for adults to recall the toy cars and the dolls that they loved as children, and for the young ones to rediscover the toys that thrilled their parents and grandparents even though they cannot be controlled remotely, do not have lights and do not make sounds. Through this event, we want to unite the generations and we want each visitor to feel like a child, regardless of their age,” Sun Plaza representatives said.
The event will also include a fair for unique toys. Exhibitors such as Art of Play, MicoStore, Ludens and Maimutzeria Tiara will bring Children’s Day into contemporary reality, offering children a variety of fun objects such as: knitted toy animals, wooden toys, and educational toys. Parents will be able to buy them from Sun Plaza on May 23-26.
Both the fair and the exhibition offered by the Toy Museum Association will be located on the ground floor of the commercial centre, in the Sun Atrium area. Both will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
