Coffee at the Cosmo December 16 - Barbie Loves Buzz: Space Toys
One of Barbie’s careers was as an Astronaut, Snoopy was the first beagle on the moon – arriving months before man got there, and Buzz Lightyear is travelling to infinity and beyond. Since the earliest days of the space program, toys have been a part of the pop-culture representations. You’ll have a chance to look at toys from the last five decades and see how space-themed toys have fueled the imagination.
