What is your favorite toy from childhood? Is it a doll, or a train, or a bat and ball? Perhaps we have a toy that brings back memories in our December/January exhibit at the Louise Pettus Archives. From December 3 through January 25, an array of toys from the past 100 years will be on display during regular Archives hours.

Among the toys included in the exhibit are a 1920s teddy bear with a music box inside, a collection of baseball cards, a toy cupboard constructed in the early 1900s, a 1940s tow truck, and a collection of My Little Ponies from the 1980s. There are toys to interest and delight the young and the young at heart.

The exhibit is available for viewing at the Pettus Archives, located at 700 Cherry Road, Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 5:00. The Archives will be closing for the holidays and winter break on Friday, December 14 and will reopen on Wednesday, January 2. For more information call the Archives at (803) 323-2334 or e-mail archives@winthrop.edu.
