National Toy Hall of Fame® Celebration
at The Strong® Museum
November 10 & 11

Honor the newly inducted toys to the National Toy Hall of Fame and revel in a weekend of activities featuring past inductees, including Slinky (2000) and Hot Wheels (2011) during the National Toy Hall of Fame Celebration at The Strong museum on Saturday, November 10 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, November 11 from 1 to 4 p.m.

Celebrate the 75-year anniversary of Slinky with special performances by Slinky Josh, an entertainer featured on NBC’s The Gong Show. Watch as he shows off gravity-defying tricks with the classic toy. After each performance, head to the Slinky Gravity Zone and create a Slinky obstacle course.

The fun continues with a celebration marking 50 years of Hot Wheels. Build a track and race your favorite Hot Wheels car against friends and family. Check out car-inspired books using your Monroe County Library System card.
