American artist and designer Leila Fakouri
Each exhibit at the Fisher-Price Toy Museum has been lovingly designed by the famous American artist and designed Leila Fakouri, known for her design work with brands such as Chanel, Nike, Gap, and Levis.
Leila’s multimedia approach uses a unique combination of eclectic design, textural form, and vivid color palettes. It even used the dimensions and textures of a real museum to give you the most authentic experience, all from the comfort of your own device.
Leila Fakouri says: “These toys were designed and created in a variety of time periods spanning nearly a century. Each decade has its own style, colors, vibe and nostalgic memories. I have focused on bringing this to life by organizing a beautiful and intricate variety of installations that reflect the visual language of each time.
The Fisher-Price Toy Museum launches October 16 and will be hosted on the official Fisher-Price Instagram page at www.instagram.com/fisherprice.
Chuck Scothon, Senior Vice President of Fisher-Price, Global Head of Early Years and Kindergarten, Mattel, says, “At Fisher-Price, we are always looking for ways to create playful connections between children and adults in their life. As many families continue to seek virtual experiences to enjoy together, we are opening a new digital museum that will allow visitors to share memories of their favorite toys with their children.
