The Buenos Aires Toy Museum show on Retro and Classic toys + Art opened this last Wednesday 5 of July at the British Arts Center. Down town BA …….

After a long and hard pre-production period, the D-day finally came. Filled with emotion and excitement, we welcomed the numerous visitors to enjoy our show. Each and every single toy was carefully selected and organized in the display furniture we specially designed for the exhibit.

Each and every single work of art we set on display was carefully sought after and chosen. Together with each exhibition unit we offer the visitor who wants more a detailed information sheet providing an insightful perspective of the items in display, this being part of our research project that's been taking place since we began to conceive the museum. The outcome was truly satisfactory. Grown ups and children, each from their perspective and their interests showed emotion as well as excitement as they admired the toys and stories behind them.

All along our goal has been to recover toys of yore from the pass of time and oblivion, together with this we have chosen to present and show these cultural items as art objects, enhancing their aesthetic features and stylish design in a historical perspective. We are proud to see our concept take body and shape in an exhibit-like environment.

Following these artistic aristae is that we invited a young and powerful growing new artist, Francisco Adaro to create a painting collection following our toy theme. His works are brilliant both in conceptual and aesthetic terms, powerful as he is; he managed to shape our concept in his art.

The show began with its right foot and we're proud, happy and enthusiastic about it.

Our retro and classic toy + art show will be at the British Arts Center from this July 5th all the way throughout the winter school break until August 6th. On the 28th of July we'll be taking part in one of Buenos Aires finest art events: Gallery nights, where we'll be showing our concept to art experts and art lovers from Argentina and from around the globe.

The show is open Tuesday thru Friday from 3PM to 9PM, Saturdays from 4PM; and during the winter break the opening hours broaden from 2PM to 9PM.

Visit us any time you want at 1333 Suipacha Street. If you would like for a special group guide, contact us directly at to schedule time and date. For more information on the Buenos Aires Toy Museum email:

This is your invitation for Gallery Nights of the 28 of July, Friday 2006 and the Art and Retro Argentinean Toy Exhibit of the Buenos Aires Toy Musuem

On Friday July 28th at 7PM opens the July edition of Gallery Nights in downtown Retiro neighborhood of Buenos Aires and we would like you to join us at the BAC, British Arts Center where we’re currently showing our Art +Retro and Classic Argentinean Toy Exhibit just a small exhibit from our virtual Toy Musuem.

Having opened on July 5th, The Buenos Aires Virtual Toy Museum presents its show on art + retro and classic Argentine Toys from the 60s, 70s and 80s at the British Arts Center BAC.

Our show features retro and classic toys and games as well as contemporary works of Art by the upcoming Argentine Artist Francisco Adaro because we conceive toys as specific and particular works of art that show a given moment in the history of design, style and aesthetics, as much as they are playful items, is that our overall concept is an artistic approach to the show.

In that sense is that our selection of toys was carefully taken care of and addresses in a curator perspective. The customized designed display units for each group of classic and retro toys was conceived regarding the theme of items in display while featuring a strong aesthetic input so as to enhance not only the theme but the toys themselves. Thanks to the use of wood and neutral colors we have achieved a strong impact of the toy complementation.

Our art perspective is based on Adaro’s works; he’s a growing artist in the city who works both on mural like works as well as oil and mix techniques on large scale paper or canvass. His works in this case were specially conceived and produced following the exhibit’s theme of classic and retro toys, using mix technique on paper of oil painting and cinder.

You can visit our show at the British Arts Center at 1333 Suipacha St, in the neighborhood of Retiro in Buenos Aires, phone: 4393-6941. Entrance is free.

Opens Tuesday thru Fridays from 3PM to 9PM. During the winter break the opening hours broaden: Monday thru Friday from 2PM to 9PM, and weekends from 4PM.

This exhibit has been specially conceived and put together as a particular artistic and cultural environment that can be shared by children and parents together as well as by grown ups who appreciate art and the aesthetic unique qualities of toys, as design items and collectibles.

We portray our toys in an artistic perspective, for they are both playful and artistic items that reflect the moment in history and culture in which they were conceived and produced, as well as played with.

Not only parents will be able to share with their kids their playful experiences of their childhood years but also visitors will be able to learn a lot about the toys they placed with, for each custom designed display furniture has a detailed explanation of the history and quality of the toys been shown.

Classic and retro toys such as robots and space toys, circus theme toys, die cast toy cars made in Argentina by Buby, Gorgo, Muky, Indian Rubber Argentine trade mark such as Duravit’s, Plush stuffed Animals as well as the very own Argentine Teddy, original Argentine Dolls as well as Strawberry Short Cake…We also have on display everything from tin toys to our most favorite kind of toys, popular toys, those homemade playful items made by parents for their children featuring an outstanding quality level. Also the famous trading cards and specially dedicated to Garbage Pail Kids Argentine Version Basuritas.

Every single one of our toys was specially selected as trade marks as well as works of art. Also, our display has been carefully thought, that’s why we designed and created special furniture for the display.

The Buenos Aires Toy Museum, Bob Frassinetti.
