Description

The astonishing things they used to do for fun. You were supposed to pick it up from where it was lying on the ground and it would go off in your hand, maybe burn it, or put your eye out. Ha ha.

Toys go back apparently at least 10,000 years. Little carved animals, let the kids play with them, keep them out of trouble.
