The “Childishness” exhibition presents works of Polish designers addressed to the youngest audience. Cuddly toys, blocks, lamps and furniture for kids. Some are individual, unique, inimitable, and some are produced in short or long (industrial) series. Publications are a separate category – they are valued and awarded on the international forums, but less known in Poland. Polish books illustration has a great and tradition worth much more attention.

The items presented on the exhibition are far from the stereotypical way of thinking about toys and children’s stuff. They undermine the convention, discuss with the user, provoke questions and play. They force a dialogue between a parent and a child. The teach and entertain at the same time.
