In my class we have been learning about Victorian toys. These are some of the toys that we have looked at and played with; a whip and peery, cup and ball, peever, hula hoop, skipping ropes, diablo, gird n cleek and football
A whip and peery is a rope tied to a stick and a wooden spinning top. A cup and ball is a wooden cup with a bit of string attached to the cup and on the other end of the string there is a wooden ball. A peever is an old metal tin with stones to make the tin heavy and some chalk to draw the hop scotch. A hula hoop is a round circle made of metal and you had to keep it going round your tummy. Skipping ropes are a long piece of rope and you have to jump over the rope. The diablo is a cylinder squashed in the middle to make a diablo. A football is a pigs bladder blown up.
