Toys in mid-20th Century Croatia

Toys in mid-20th Century Croatia:

V.H.: We did not have many toys, we had one box, and dragged on a rape, and had fun like a wagon ride. Me and my sister and two, or three cousins together played this way.


V.H. recounts an experience of child lore that has left a lasting impression upon her.On the island that V.H. was raised, in Dalmatia, there was poverty. Children had to make due with what was available, and while there were not many toys, they fashioned toys out of available resources, such as the makeshift wagon described here.
