Anyone living in Canada, or planning a trip there, might want to stop by Windsor's Community Museum in Windsor, Ontario, to check out their Robots Among Us exhibit. It features just a sampling of collector Darryl Dupuis' vintage and new space toys, and provides an excellent overview of the toys and their history.

The display will be up through January, though I suggest contacting the museum before traveling out there. The museum can be reached via their web site at www.citywindsor.ca/002821.asp.

Sadly, I live nowhere near Windsor, so I can't make it to the museum. If anyone happens to go, feel free to write up a post and take some photos, and I'll run them both as a guest blog entry. (Nope, no pay, just fame and glory for your endeavors.)
