This show of child-related high design—of toys, furniture, storybook illustrations and related items—is anything but kids' stuff, as it looks at how attitudes toward children and child-raising dramatically evolved during the 20th century. Hipster parents will definitely plotz for the toy wheelbarrow created by De Stijl master Gerrit Rietveld, and for Marcel Breuer's scaled-down versions of his swank tubular steel tables and chairs.
