The workshop was held on July 31th, 2021 and investigated the toy
A leaf, a stone, running water, a piece of cloth, a wooden stump, a mother’s bracelet, her father’s slipper, a plastic cup, a small clay dish. If it attracts interest, it becomes a toy. If put into action, it becomes play.
Perhaps play and humanity are of the same age; such action, defined by the repetition of a pleasant practice and for no apparent reason, has always been based on the imaginative power that makes the game with everyday items and perceptions extraordinary.
Some say that the toy simulates a variety of tests for adulthood, activates the development of motor and psychological activities. On the other hand, there are those who say that dealing with toys is essential how to eat.
What are the stories of your toys and how is their relationship with playing?

About the MCB Educational
The Educational MCB proposes practices that articulate the look, doing and thinking so that visitors can assume the role of researchers, researching the contents that the museum offers in a contemporary perspective. The idea is to create challenges for participants in educational activities to raise questions from their own experiences and discover new meanings by relating the visit to the MCB with their lives.
