The Toy Museum in Brooklyn Heights was founded in 1999 by toy-and-doll enthusiast (and mom) Marlene Hochman. The mini-institution’s goal is simple: to demonstrate the historic and cultural importance of playthings from different eras. Along with displays of antique porcelain dolls and mid-century favorites like the Easy-Bake Oven, Mr. Potato Head and Raggedy Ann. The museum houses exhibits, chess and art classes, Birthday parties and a theater program that breathes life into the lessons. Queen Marlene’s Toy Theater, established in 2010, presents original, interactive plays about—what else?—toys.
