Toys! Toys! Toys!

We like toys! This week we have been looking at old toys that our great-grandparents, grandparents and parents played with. Here we are investigating these toys.

Victorian Hoop and Stick

Jacob's Ladder

A timeline of Toys

Old Fashioned Roller Skates


A Wooden Moving Toy and Whip & Top

Pick up Sticks

Shove Ha'penny

Russian Dolls

We really liked the metal roller skates and the Jacob's ladder. Which toy is your favourite?

In our discussions we compared toys from the different eras and came up with some good questions:

What is it made from?
How much did it cost?
Was it popular?
How did children play with them?

Impact: We understand that toys have changed over time and that there are some similarities and differences between the toys that our grandparents played with and those toys we enjoy today.
