The Toys Story

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

  • 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.
  • Inflated pig bladders and knucklebones were used as toys and games by children in Ancient Greece
  • John Spilsbury made the first jigsaw puzzle. His aim was to teach geography through puzzles!
