AMAZING SCHOENHUT DISPLAY, A MESSAGE FROM CROTON'S TOM MIANO OF SERIOUSTOYZ
I wanted to let you know about a special event taking place this weekend.
On Sat Sept. 20th, & Sun. 21st, there will be a special exhibit of Schoenhut toys at the Coney Island Sideshow Museum in Brooklyn, NY. This is a unique opportunity to see a giant set-up of the "Humpty Dumpty" circus. With over 200 original pieces, this is one of the largest Schoenhut collections ever exhibited, and everything is set up in a large display, with dozens of "acts" going on. Additionally, there is a separate display of Schoenhut's extremely rare "Teddy Roosevelt on Safari" set. A stop-action movie created with the collection's figures is being shown, made especially for this event. (CLICK ON THE PHOTOS BELOW, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.)
On Saturday afternoon, there will be a reception held, and "circus food" will be served free. We invite those in the NYC area this weekend to stop by and see this rare event. Admission is free, but a donation to the non-profit "Coney Island USA" is suggested.
It will be held at Coney Island USA's Shooting Gallery / Arts Annex. The address is 1214 Surf Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11224. It will be open from 12 - 7 each day. See more about this event at: http://www.coneyisland.com/event/serioustoyzexhibit#sthash.MR78dRhK.dpuf
In addition to the display, the "Coney Island Film Festival" is being held on the same days. Plus there is also the usual Coney Island fun: try the rides, including the famous "Wonder Wheel" and the "Cyclone", the oldest operating wooden roller coaster in the world; eat a hot dog at the original Nathan's, amuse yourself at the various midway games & attractions. Big fun all around!
Hope to see you there!
