Toys Did Caveman Kids Play With To Pass The Time Back in the days,
when home was a cave stuck on the face of a cliff.
Kids, babies, cubs, kittens or whatever you like to call the offspring,
have one thing in common. They love to play. So I think we can safely
that caveman kids played. But with what did they play with.
What amused the minds of our ancestor's kids when
they were lying around the
fire after a hard day learning about staying alive. We are still trying
out the minor details of the past lives of children of prehistory, but
were the first jigsaw puzzles just leaves that had been ripped up into
little pieces so the little ones could put them back together. Was this
teaching aid so the kids could learn which plants were safe to eat. We
possible never know but it is good to ponder.
Back in prehistory before houses and cars and TVs,
video games and all the
modern gadgets that we have nowadays. What toys did caveman kids play
daddy was out hunting the mighty mammoth or giant sloth. And mommy was
vegetables and herbs and grasses and whatever else they ate back then.
Anyway many artifacts have been dug up, mostly bone
and rock carving of people
and wild animals. Beautiful carvings, something to be really proud of.

If your children
are having problems at school, it could be because their reading is not

English. Even in Math you have to be able to read the text to
understand what to

will they come to. Looking at some of the dinosaur toys available,
conclude that these beasts actually walked among the skyscrapers.
In the 25th century if you dug up an old car toy
that hadn't rusted away, how
would you explain it.
Would you say it was some sort of God that we
worshiped, or was it a decorative
item we used to show power. It could have been a model of the king's
but do we stop to think that it may have been something for our kids to
with, while we were out making more money to buy even more things for
to play with.
We have war games with tiny toy soldiers and cowboy
and Indian sets. What is to
stop the tiny carved human figures from prehistory being toys to teach
the best way to hunt down a mammoth or rhino or deer.
If we made some replica models of some of the
artifacts, and gave them to our
kids to play with in the sand pit. We might see them reenacting a

to kid status.

Did the caveman kids also have collections of toys.
Now, our kids even have toy
cavemen to play with, so what did caveman kids play with.
I can remember Fred Flintstone on TV but did
Pebbles and BamBam
have any toys. All I can remember is BamBam running around with

long forgotten cave will
unearth the Barbie prototype. Or the lovely bird carved from a
