Tell us about your childhood!

Tell us about your childhood!

 

The Toy Museum Hevosenkenkä wishes to get to hear the story of your childhood with the questionnaires A Phenomenal Childhood and The Best Toys and Games Ever. What kind of toys did you play with and with whom? In what kind of environment and social conditions did you spend your first years? The survey is a part of our museum’s project A Phenomenal Childhood, which charts childhood phenomena in different time periods. The project itself is a part of the background research that the museum is conducting pertaining to a future overhaul of the museum’s concept and exhibits. We aim to be customer oriented and listen to our audiences. The questionnaire A Phenomenal Childhood is aimed at adults and The Best Toys and Games Ever for children. We wish to receive responses from all quarters and all ages. Take part and ensure that the themes of your childhood will be seen in the museum of the future!

 

You can also send in pictures or other files that have to do with childhood or play via email: laura.kokki[a]hevosenkenka.fi (file size max 3 Mt). Please note that by sending a file you give the museum permission to use it for research purposes! We ask permissions separately for other uses.

 

The surveys can also be answered and pictures and other material sent by mail. The address is: Finnish Toy Museum Hevosenkenkä, P.O. Box 6665, 02070 City of Espoo. Remember to give your contact information in the letter.
