Caity's Toy Display

caity photoI designed my two cases with children in mind. Personally I think people develop more open minds, if they had good imaginations as children. Toys open their minds to imaginary and fantasy lives. I think that toys have played a huge role in people lives. If you were to ask adults what they remember from their childhood they usually bring up a favorite toy. They remember it because it gave them comfort, and help develop their character. Victorians had many toys, children found objects that kept them busy and happy.
