Toys of the Future features the stellar and widely celebrated Goldbarth Collection of mid-20th century “space toys.” During the 20th century, when the future presented itself as a force to be reckoned with, toys took on the challenge. There is no finer example of this than “space toys,” the rockets, saucers, robots and ray guns introduced to children during the 1930s and beyond– the era of Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, and other gravity-defying, planet hopping heroes. Space themed toys have been universally enjoyed by children around the globe.
