Here's a great new eBook, 59 pages with all types of toys, games and amusements, all taken directly from the pages of Godey's Lady's Book from the 1800's with original pictures and instructions. Included are instructions for making all kinds of toys, doll furniture and doll houses, paper houses, a pavilion, a theatre, sundial, aquarium, dancing dolls, electric experiments using household items - much of it made of paper of cardboard. There is also an article on the very newest craze "balloons" from 1857 - a very interesting article indeed. Practical and moral advice for mothers regarding toys and instructions on how to play a wealth of parlour, playroom and playground games plus many engravings of children's activities. Interesting for those of you who wish to recreate these amusements and also for the historian interested in this era. This is available for instant download as a pdf file - buyers who want a hard copy can print it out on their own printer if they wish. Please see my store for other great e-books!!!
