Egyptians had toys? Like what a rock on a stick? WHOO! Surprisingly they had more "sophisticated" toys. Like dolls. no not like the picture to the left. More like the paddle doll to the right. They were usually made from trees growing near the nile. For poor children they usually had dolls that were stuffed with clay and silt from the Nile. Yay a dirt sack how exciting. Anyway how about the rich you ask? They had dolls more like the modern ones. They had movable limbs and animal hair usually. Some other toys were rattles, tops and mini weapons that they played soldier with. One of the most popular toys was a ball made out of leather and other cloths. Another toy was the animal figurine. Unlike most figurines these had moving mouths. So they could spend hours a day having their toy hippo bite their fingers... Yay!
