The exhibition “Come and Play!” presents to the public “Toys and social games in socialist Yugoslavia from the collection of Vladimir Radojičić and the collections of the National Museum Kraljevo”, and its authors are historians of the National Museum Kraljevo Mirjana Savić, museum advisor and Nemanja Trifunovic, curator, as well as ethnologist Sofija Pršić. The “Aria” Choir, led by Dragana Milićević, is participating in the opening. The exhibition provides a brief overview of the production, sale and use of toys produced in Yugoslavia, but also imported from other countries in the period from the fifties to the eighties of the twentieth century, as well as insight into various economic, political and social circumstances, which directly affected childhood and growing up in socialist Yugoslavia. The collections include toys produced in Yugoslav factories or created in publishing companies: “Mehanotehnika” Izola, “Jugoplastika” Split, “Biserka” Zagreb, “25. May” Labin,“Lio” Osijek, “Tik Tik” Krapina, “Poligalant” Volčja Draga, “Turistička štampa” Belgrade and “Dečje novine” Gornji Milanovac. By uniting the works of Vladimir Radojičić’s collection with toys and social games from the collections of the National Museum Kraljevo through the exhibition “Come and Play!”, the Museum continues to cooperate with institutions, societies and individuals in order to jointly inherit important and precious layers of culture that have shaped many generations.
