Island of Misfit Toys

By Gina Thomas McGee, Associate Educator

This year’s Island of Misfit Toys workshop was a blast! We had a sold-out crowd of over 250 people who came ready to build misfit masterpieces. Families hammered, smashed and hot glued to their hearts content, transforming toys into spectacular sculptures (with the help of some googly eyes). We saw a tennis ball Spongebob Squarepants, basketball hoop train station and many wild animal creations. In addition to being creative, attendees were incredibly generous as they each came with a new toy to donate to Toys for Tots. Thanks to everyone who attended. We hope you can join us again next year. In the meantime, don’t throw away any old or broken toys- we’ve already started collecting for next year!
