BIBIANA, 2. poschodie
A well designed and manufactured toy supports and even develops the sense of beauty, purposefulness and empathy in us. Our exhibition starts with a re-paint of a painting by Pieter Brueghel, on which the kids can look for games that are sill played today. Further they find here replicas of historic toys made according to archaeological findings, the iconic technical construction toy "Merkur" (screws and perforated sheet-metal parts), which gets manufactured since 1920 a city from a big and colourful kit, a tiny house for the dolls and a Teddy-bear, but also plastic-toys from the last century by the famous designer Libuša Niklová. They will learn to know toys designed by our contemporary designers and they can even invent and design their very own toy.
This interactive toy-focused exhibition is BIBIANA's contribution to the Year of Slovak Design, which was proclaimed by the Culture Ministry of the Slovak Republic.
