Product Description

Review

Like the popular Victorian kaleidoscope, this book is a kind of fanciful mirror; it reflects the social context of the era by providing a colorful glimpse of people at play -- Canadian Children's Literature

This book claims to have it all but I am sorry I bought it. It toutches a lot of aspects regarding old toys but with not enough examples. I expected the book to be full of old toys' pictures. For people with now ideas regarding "old toys" it has some nice aspects

A FUN step back in time for kids! Oct. 10 2007
By J. Arena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Young readers will be immediately drawn into Bobbie Kalman's wonderfully researched world of play in the 1800s! Divided into sections, blocks, dolls, optical toys, board games, etc., with lavish illustrations, this book will become a favorite in your library.

Simple instructions to make a simple toy with the impressive name of "thaumatrope," which relies on an optical illusion called "persistence of vision" will wow the most bored grade-schooler or adult. I highly recommend this book for any child who loves history, art, and studying the everyday lives of people.

Too Boring July 1 2011
By K. Tipping - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I hoped this book would be a cool picture of the past that would draw kids into history through something they love: toys. Unfortunately, it failed to deliver. It was a little boring, talking about blocks and common things like Jacob's latter. There were some pictures, but they were of kind of boring stuff, like a disk on a string that spins when you tighten the string.

Overall there were too many common and boring things without much about each one, just the stuff you would already know.

At the back there WAS a cool activity about spinning a disk with a picture on the top half of one side and the bottom half of the other to form one picture when spun, however there was only one activity and the rest of the book was lacking.

I wouldn't recommend buying it.
