While the ways in which children play have changed over time, toys have always been an important part of our lives. PlayDates celebrates some of the most popular toys in America with a look into the collections of the Washington State Historical Society. Did you know that the Slinky Dog and Cranium were both invented by Washingtonians? Learn fun facts to impress your friends and see decades of fun represented through play sets, games, and things that “go.”
