A charming stash of the everyday playthings of sixteenth or seventeenth century children, the hoard throws a rare spotlight on the material culture of children in the archaeological record.

Very interesting. Thank goodness toys are much nicer and safer now. Getting hit with a ball from back then would have been the equivalent of being hit with a rock.
