Do you remember your favorite childhood toy? Gone (perhaps) but not forgotten. Toys are about imagination and imagination is the first tool of all artists and designers. So sharpen up your tool, tap into your inner child and create a custom toy!

AIGA is hosting its first custom toy show, Designers in Toyland, at the December Art Walk, December 2 from 5-9 pm downtown. Both AIGA members and non-members are invited to build a toy from scratch, choose an existing toy and take it to another level, or paint a blank vinyl toy — anything that makes the toy a creation unique to you. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to The Big Fun Box. If you are interested in submitting a custom toy, please e-mail Karen Kurycki at by November 12th.
