Artistic Adult Collectibles: The Design Exchange’s ‘This Is Not A Toy’ Exhibit Will Appeal to Your Inner Child

Opening to the general public today through to the 19th of May, the ‘This Is Not A Toy’ exhibit is the latest art showcase from Toronto’s design museum, the Design Exchange. Curated by Sara Nickelson, John Wee Tom, and celebrity-guest curator Pharrell Williams, the exhibit displays adult collectibles and designer toys as artistic sculptures that comment on everything from pop culture to social issues.

Attending an advance, media preview and breakfast at the exhibit early yesterday morning, THE BRUNETTES enjoyed an exclusive sneak peek of the toy gallery’s private collections and funhouse-like surroundings. Familiar characters, celebrities, and original creations all presented in toy form inspired many at the launch to Instagram a pic of the toy that most appealed to their inner child, creating an air of playfulness that could be felt throughout the room.
