Happy days are here again because the Marx Toy Convention is happening again this year, and it happens Friday and Saturday at The Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum in Wheeling. Your PopCulteer is thrilled to be going back to this toy show, which is one of the most enjoyable in the country. You can see our coverage of last year’s show HERE and HERE.
This year, we’re running up for the first day, then we’ll make a Friday evening stop in Moundsville for a book signing at the Mound Museum and after that we’ll head over to our own personal Brigadoon as Francis Turner re-opens the Marx Toy Musuem for one night only for a private sale. Saturday we are bypassing the second day of the show so that we can get into some creative FiestaWare trouble in Newell. However, if you can’t make it up Friday, give Saturday a shot. What better way is there to spend the day before Father’s day than visiting The Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum and maybe buying Dad some of the toys he cherished as a child?
I’ve been covering the Marx Toy Convention for more than a decade, and you can find an index to most of that coverage HERE.
