History

The Ancient Eqyptians, Greeks and Romans all produced similar wooden dolls and animals with moving arms and limbs.

​

This type of toy had wide appeal during the Victorian period,  Jointed figures and animals would be kept in a box for playing with on rainy days or long train journeys.

​

Dogs have been mans best friend for centuries with songs and nursery rhymes written about them like this one from 1840.

​

Two little dogs sat by the fire,

Over a fender of coal dust;

Said one little dog to the other little dog,

“If you don’t talk, then I must”
