and Ben Chaisson- Playground Studios

Step into The ToyBox, an essentially different kind of space, where young and old can PLAY. Whether you are in grade 5 or grade 50, The Toybox engages the mind with art, technology, and other people by mixing creativity, interactivity and the special sauce that is: FUN. With toys like green screens, projectors, Lego and play-doh; The ToyBox gives you an opportunity to access your IMAGINATION. The ToyBox was featured at TPM in September and as part of TPM’s Queen West Street Fest, and lived at City Hall for a week as well!
