The Monroe County Local History Room’s polls are now open to cast your vote for the most beloved toys made from the 1940s through 1990s.
It’s LEGO vs. Erector Sets, Etch A Sketch vs. Play-Doh, and G.I. Joe vs. He-Man. Though the Monroe County Local History Room & Museum’s previously planned “1960s Christmas” exhibit is postponed for a year due to Covid-19, another exhibit is set to open Thursday, Nov. 19, called “Monroe County Chooses … The Toys We Love.”
This colorful and playful exhibit will feature the most beloved toys as determined by the public through an online poll. To participate, simply go to the online poll found in the “NEWS” section of www.MonroeCountyHistory.org or Facebook.com/MCLHR. Once there, select your favorite three toys from each category. The toys with the most votes will be featured in the exhibit. The poll should only take five to 10 minutes to complete. Vote only once per person. The poll will be open through Sunday, Sept. 20.
The Monroe County Local History Room & Museum is located at 200 W. Main St., Sparta, and open to museum visitors by reservation from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Admission is free. For more information, call 269-8680 or visit Facebook.com/MCLHR.
