“At a time when there is so much stress and turmoil in the world and in our lives, I thought it would be refreshing to offer an interlude of pleasant nostalgia with a chance to look back at the toys and games of our youth – and perhaps to bring children to share these wonderful experiences.”
Joe Brostek, QHS Trustee & Exhibit Curator
