Toys from the Past

Teachers' notes

Many of the toys at the Harris Museum are around 100 years old. This resource can be used by schools and early years settings alike to gain an understanding of toys in the past. Why not follow up with a visit to the Harris Museum and Art Gallery where a workshop on Toys can be booked and led by the education team?
