The Toys Story

Tim Lambert has written a very interesting article on the history of toys.
Some interesting facts:

1) Doll houses were first made in Germany in 1558. (And yes, I did read Raksha's post on Barbie. More on that in another post)
2) Inflated pig bladders and knucklebones were used as toys and games by children in Ancient Greece
3) John Spilsbury made the first jigsaw puzzle. His aim was to teach geography through puzzles!
