Museum of Liverpool’s Then and Now: Toys Workshop
This workshop uses original and replica toys from the Museum of Liverpool’s handling collection to examine toys that people in the past played with. Students will look at how toys have changed through time by examining their materials, colours and how they’ve been made.
Students will learn the differences in materials, design and technology and how these provide clues about the age of the toys. Various toys are arranged on a mini timeline based on their materials and technology. Students will get the chance to work together to use their knowledge of materials, technology and design to sort a range of toys into ‘older’ and ‘newer’.
