The Nostalgia Awakens

Vintage Star Wars™ Toy Display

January 24  - June 20, 2021

When Star Wars™ hit the movie theaters in 1977, it instantly became a box office smash, especially with children.  Kids wanted to bring the action home from the theater with them with their favorite heroes, villains, creatures, and spaceships in miniature size on the toy shelves.  From 1978 to 1985, Kenner Toys manufactured hundreds of action figures, vehicles, and playsets featured in the movies Star Wars™, The Empire Strikes Back™, and Return of the Jedi™.  These toys today are as iconic as the movies themselves. On view, the largest public display of these original Kenner™ Star Wars™ toys ever in Wisconsin will be at the Oshkosh Public Museum.
