Sculptures were placed in order not to forget traditional children's games such as leapfrog, dumplings, hopscotch, I sell oil and sell honey, and for future generations to know these games.

We have an old train, a tram, a plane, a helicopter, a tractor, a bus, and cars from 1980 and below. These are the nostalgic cars of the childhood of those over 50. We've all seen these vehicles on the roads somehow, we lived somehow. We gathered these together and wanted them to create a value for Karabük and Karabük Universities. " said.
Polat said that people come to the campus with their children and families in the evenings and said, “We created a joyful and peaceful area here with different vehicles. We are waiting for all our visitors from outside of Karabük and Karabük. There are currently around 40 vehicles in this area, but I guess they will exceed 100 in the near future. Because many people have vehicles in front of their ancestors and grandfathers, I think they will donate them here, there are demands in this direction. We will write their names, we will take the vehicles here. But we prefer it to be 1980 and below vehicles. " he spoke.
Somali Abdurrahman Aldullahi İshak, who studied at KBU, said, “I saw Çiçek Abbas in the movie before. So it looked familiar. It is a very nice feeling to see cars used in other countries here. "People are happy when they see the different tools and see Çiçek Abbas."
Dilek Bakır, a student of KBU Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Department, stated that she saw the opening of the museum on social media. Stressing that they came to see him with his friends, Bakır said: “We are not sure whether the model is real or not. It was a very nice and nice design. It makes us proud on behalf of our school. It is very good for our past not to be forgotten because the children of our time are not aware of the games played outside. But we were touched for experiencing their last period. "
