Victorian Dolls and Toys – What did Children Play With?

Thursday, September 10th, 2009



The Victorian era was a time of great invention and innovation. This was also reflected in the toys of the times, since there were a lot of mechanical toys invented during this period, such as mechanical banks that would encourage children to save money. Money would be inserted into a slot and then a mechanical doll or dog would perform a trick.

Victorian Boy’s Toys

Poorer Victorian boys would play with marbles, spinning tops, kites, balls and cheap wooden toys or paper home-made boats.

Richer Victorian boys would have clockwork train sets, soldier sets, wooden blocks beautiful rocking horses with real horse hair manes and spinning tops.

Victorian Girl’s Toys

Poor Victorian girls would have cloth-peg dolls, skipping ropes and iron hoops.

Richer girls would be spoilt with china or wax dolls, dolls houses with beautiful miniature furniture made their own and tea sets. Drawing and reading was always encouraged.

During Victorian times, people became fascinated by toys that made pictures move.

Where Can I Find Vintage and Antique Victorian Toys?

There are many online stores specializing in Victorian collectibles and stores that buy and sell antique toys. An online search is a good place to start. Also, try looking out for antique toys at collectors fairs and antique fairs.

Try going through the attic, or grandma’s things or even garage sales and the search may reveal some interesting collectibles that can be quite valuable and that go back all the way to the Victorian era.
