From construction blocks to Gumby, playhouses to Playskool trains, artistic Playthings to the Eames condominium of playing cards, Crayola fingerpaint to children’s museums, fabric items and areas formed a favored knowing of creativity, and Designing the artistic Child demonstrates how this proposal has been woven into the material of yank culture.
