The exhibition presents local craft, social history, contemporary art, and childhood experiences of past and current generations. It celebrates the imagination and creativity of hobbyist toymakers and professional artists alike: their optimism, humour, and unstoppable urge to play. 

'Toy Stories' is curated by Sarah Toohey and can be seen at the Midland Junction Art Centre as part of the Indian Ocean Craft Triennial.
