MoMA’s playful new exhibition.


I want to play with every single thing shown in this photograph. Perhaps the name of MoMA's latest exhibition should be "Century of the child-at-heart" rather than "Century of the Child: Growing by Design 1900-2000." The show is the first "large-scale overview of the modernist preoccupation with children and childhood as a paradigm for progressive design thinking." The themes explored include school architecture, clothing, playgrounds, toys and games, children's hospitals and safety equipment, nurseries, furniture, and books. The must-see objects on display range from Alma Siedhoff-Buscher's Bauhaus nursery furniture to children's chairs by Marcel Breuer to works by Charles and Ray Eames.

Which childhood toy or game do you wish you still had?
