  • The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures, formerly the Toy and Miniature Museum of Kansas City, is closed for renovations and is preparing plans for a two-story toy sculpture. That’s where your small toys, game pieces, and knick-knacks come in.
    The museum’s new lobby layout includes a sculpture that staff and board have coined the “Toytisserie” because of the rotating, rotisserie-like movement of the conveyor belt. Rotating panels of toys will slide by viewers for a rainbow game of I Spy. The sculpture includes 48 toy-covered panels that are 30 inches wide by 9 inches tall and will scale two floors.
    Donations may be dropped off at the following locations through Sept. 30:
    • Kansas City Public Library, Plaza Branch, Kid Corner, 4801 Main St., Kansas City.
    • Student Union at University of Missouri- Kansas City, Level Two, 5100 Cherry St., Kansas City.
    • School of Medicine at University of Missouri- Kansas City, Hospital Hill Campus, 2411 Holmes St., Kansas City.
    • Johnson County Central Resource Library, 9875 W. 87th St., Overland Park.
