The Toys in the Community oral history project asked people about three types of toys - teddy bears, dolls and construction toys. We also collected examples of these for our reminiscence boxes and outreach sessions. Some people also mentioned other toys, or the fact that they didn’t own any.
To illustrate the different types of toy Steven Cragg took photographs of toys. While most of these are on display at Brighton Toy and Model Museum others were from the reminiscence boxes or borrowed from people.
