Past toys

Created byEnglishHeritage

Ask pupils to look at the family photograph that was taken in 1900. Ask them to try and spot any toys in the photograph. The toys in the picture are a doll and a horse and cart. Ask the pupils if they still play with toys like these. You may want to bring in a modern doll and toy car, to help them make comparisons between the old toys in the photograph and ones today. Then ask them to look for similarities and differences between the old and new toys, such as the doll’s clothes, why a horse not car? You could also ask what they think the toys might be made of.
