Play is serious-
To mark the occasion, doll's houses, bears and grocery shops will come to life thanks to modern technology. The exhibition will be entirely devoted to play: children have always played and will always play. And that's a good thing: in play, we learn many skills that we need in order to lead an independent life later on. So play is about more than just having fun. Play is serious!
