Springs for spring

Gatineau, Quebec, April 18, 2007 — Spring really has sprung at the Canadian Children’s Museum (CCM), and what better way to celebrate than with springs, of all things? On Saturday, April 28 and Sunday, April 29, come to the Children’s Museum, located inside the Canadian Museum of Civilization, and make your own special spring toy to take home with you.

You can learn all about springs and what fun they bring, challenge your friends to a Slinky® race in the new theatre, and even meet someone who can walk on springs!

The Spring Toys! activities at the CCM are inspired by Top Secret: Mission Toy. This fun exhibition, presented until September 3, 2007, lets you use your investigative skills to discover toys from around the world.
