Since the beginning of the Egyptian, Greek and Roman civilizations, games and toys have played an essential role.
In 700 BC appear the first dolls with articulated limbs.
Many other miniaturized objects were also found such as tools, weapons, statuettes and animal figures.
Let’s not forget the games our children always play, such as marbles and knucklebones. The Romans, for example, played a lot of strategic military games such as Latroncules.
The games of conquering territory and pieces were the main goal of the games of hopscotch and the pyramid of nuts for example.
