Victorian Toys Resources for Teachers

Toys are a fantastic way to learn more about the Victorians. You can find out what children liked to do, what they looked like and how they used their toys to learn about the world around them. Here we have put together a selection of toys from The Judge's Lodging collection, along with notes to help you learn about them and suggestions of questions you might like to use in your classroom about them.
