A video to prompt playtime memories

WIRED (which styles itself with all capital letters) just posted this 40-minute video on its YouTube channel, featuring commentary from the chief curator at the Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, New York, about the most popular toys each year over the past 50 years.

I love learning about history and culture via oblique avenues like toys, food, clothing, tools, etc. And it’s sort of cool to realize that there’s a “play” museum counterpart to the “work”-focused museum (the Grohmann Museum) my office is in. So many interesting museums to visit in this world!
