Dolls, Demographics, and Dysentery


Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls, and Toys
1880 Gaylord St.
Denver, CO 80206

Thanks to the wide world of toys and games, “You have died of dysentery,” a familiar phrase from the game The Oregon Trail, was a staple of many people’s childhood. Have you ever thought about how weird that is? This presentation put on by the Denver Obscura Society explores how politics and culture have influenced toys throughout history. A self-guided tour of the museum is included in the evening, as is the toy of choice of adults everywhere: free craft beer.
