Toys and Games

NotesSince early times humans have been making and playing with toys and games. Some of them have a serious purpose, to teach a skill or a way of life. But others are purely for leisure and pleasure. The museum collection contains hundreds of cards, instruments, playthings and miniature versions of much larger objects, which may have been used as toys but might also have been teaching aids or apprentice pieces.
