Tinkering with Toys

How do toys work?  What's inside them?  How are they made?

Visit The Shed to make, create, destroy and rebuild toys.

Check out the Fun Science with Traditional Toys exhibition visiting Questacon from the National Science Museum in Thailand to explore how traditional Thai toys relate to angular momentum, inertia, energy, sound, balance, gravity, force and motion.
