Schoenhut Visits the Philadelphia History Museum Schoenhut Exhibit!

Jessica, a member of the Schoenhut team, was able to visit the Schoenhut exhibit in Philadelphia recently. It was really cool to see the history of Schoenhut. As you may know, Len & Renee Trinca bought the company in 1996. While we know quite a bit about the history of the company, we have never seen it in full display like this. Albert Schoenhut was the founder of the toy piano as we know it. He switched the glass pieces for metal rods- making it more durable and giving it the chime like sound we are all so familiar with. He didn’t stop with toy instruments however, he went on to make board games and dolls sets as well! Take a look at the exhibit below and enjoy going back in time for a bit.
