An exhibition at the MoMA celebrates the century of the child.

If you happen to be in New York, here is something you don’t want to miss: Century of the Child, an ambitious exhibition at the MoMA about design for children (its theories and developments) in the XX Century – “the century of the child,” as design reformer Ellen Key called (and envisioned) it in 1900.

All pictures via MoMA.

Toys, books, posters, objects: the exhibition is an impressive collection of all that design has done for and about children last century.

And for those of you who can’t see the show, there is a great website about the show, which is essentially an online version of the exhibition and gives a pretty accurate idea of the extent of the collection.

And if you are planning to go see the show with your kids (you should!), here is a family activity guide to help you make the most of the visit. The exhibition is up through November 5th and you can find more information about the related events here.

And while you are at the MoMA, don’t forget to take an Unadulterated tour!
