Magic Toy Box is the newest project of Stevanne Auerbach, Ph.D., “Dr. Toy”. In 1986, Dr. Auerbach founded and served as director of the San Francisco International Toy Museum, the world’s first interactive toy museum. More than 50,000 children visited the museum between 1986 and 1990, when the Loma Prieta earthquake forced it to shut its doors. New toys and products, as well as historical collectibles, were a mainstay of this unique “hands on” museum: Children could not only look at the eclecting sampling of toys, but they touch, climb on and hug most of them to their heart’s content! Dr. Toy, Stevanne Auerbach, PhD, has been for many years one of the nation’s and world’s leading experts on play, toys, and children’s products. With 30 years of direct experience, Dr. Auerbach includes educationally oriented, developmental and skill building products from the best large and small companies in her four annual award programs. Many parents, teachers and toy buyers use Dr. Toy’s guidance in making selections. Learn more.
