Once upon a century

Join us on a tour of the century as we show you toys and characters that have passed their 100th-year milestone in 2019! From Peter Rabbit, Olive Oyl, Felix the Cat, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and more, Make & Play presents to you what was once upon a century!

 

Learn about the toys that were made based on these centennial classics, the materials and stories that were behind them!

 

Once Upon a Century is the final Make & Play of 2019 that you will want to participate! Adult or Child alike, create a toy that has transcended a century and still as popular today! Flipbook: One of the biggest selling optical toys in the early 20th century and it is the first form of animation to employ a linear sequence of images.

 

Flipbooks are now widely considered a toy or novelty for children and were once a typical “prize” in cereal boxes. In addition to their role in the birth of cinema, Flipbooks continue to be used in marketing today, as well as in art and published photographic collections. Vintage flipbooks are popular among collectors, and especially rare ones from the late 19th to the early 20th century have been known to fetch thousands of dollars in sales and auctions.

 

A “century-fic” Make & Play suitable for children ages 6 – 15, families encouraged to participate!

 

Who may attend?

 
If you are fascinated by history on toys and characters from the past, or even someone interested in vintage animated toys, this programme is the one for you!
