Remembering Toys: From Suzy Homemaker To G.I. Joe


We crack open the toy box of old with Chris Bensch, Chief Curator at the Strong National Museum of Play, to understand how toys and games became such an integral part of our culture and why children find solace in toys and play. We also check in with a company in Vermont that makes paper toys and flip books.

Also on the program, as they place their vote with the Electoral College, we check in with Windsor State Representative Kevin Christie, one of Vermont's three electors.

Plus, we stop in at a food venture center on Route 7 in Shelburne,where a winery, a brewery, two farms and other food-related businesses have created what some are calling a culinary corridor.
