That little Army man in the couch cushions or that Happy Meals toy in the junk drawer could have new life as part of a museum exhibit.
Kansas City’s National Museum of Toys and Miniatures, 5235 Oak St., is asking people to donate colorful, palm-sized toys for a two-story sculpture that is being created while the museum is closed for renovations. The sculpture is called a “toytisserie” because it will rotate in front of visitors.
Go to Pinterest to see a simulation.
Toys can be dropped off through Sept. 30 at the Kansas City Public Library’s Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St.; the Johnson County Central Resource Library, 9875 W. 87th St. in Overland Park; the University Missouri-Kansas City Student Union, 5100 Cherry St.;the UMKC School of Medicine, 2411 Holmes St.; and the Southtown Council, 6814 Troost Ave.
