Florida Girls and Boys and Their Toys

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

October 6 – December 14, 2021

Journey back through time and recapture the wonderful way that children play with their toys at the “Florida Girls and Boys and Their Toys” exhibit at South Florida State College’s Museum of Florida Art and Culture (MOFAC).   This travelling exhibit from the Museum of Florida History features thirty vintage photos of children and their toys from the 1890s to 1971.

A collection of work by Sebring artist Mary Seigfreid, “Textured Constructions,” includes children’s vintage playthings.

The exhibit features a variety of toys including a rare Bing Pygmyphone, antique dolls, a 1940s handmade rocking bull and an assortment of games.
