Roman toys

This post is also available in: Polish (polski)

Roman horse toy
Greek toy horse from the 10th century BCE. The Romans made exactly the same toys.

Roman toys that children played with were called crepundia. There were popular rag, clay or wax dolls, wooden horses on wheels.

Naturally, the children also had their plays – however there are no records in the sources. Perhaps, however, there was popular a form of today’s blind man’s buff. They were also playing hide-and-seek, swinging or playing hacele.
