Top Secret: Mission Toy

Top Secret: Mission Toy

Top Secret: Mission Toy is an exhibition that invites the experts — children – to use their investigative and playtime skills to explore, examine and learn about intriguing toys from around the world. The exhibition is designed as a humorous international investigation site known as Toy Central – International Headquarters. The environment plays off the familiar and imagined elements of a secret research and experimentation facility. The space is lively and colourful, contrasting professional research activities with witty twists on intrigue and investigation. The overall exhibition approach creates an exaggerated tone that is inspired from and in part spoofs the language and style of the popular genre of spy films, books and television programs.

Space Required : 112 m² (1200 ft²)
