Toys in Ancient Rome

Posted by Rob Calabrese

The more I learn about the ancient world, the more I am amazed at how similar those people were to us here in 2016.  What motivates, or scares, people today are the same things that influenced people two thousand years ago.   So I guess it shouldn't have been a surprise to see that the things that kids played with back then still have appeal today.  Here are some of the toys of Ancient Rome.

Action figures

Tops, animals, action figures

Careful with these kids, some are made out of pure lead, so no chewing.
