The Victorian Age
The Victorian Age began in 1837 when Queen Victoria ascended the British throne and lasted up to her death in 1901. It was an era of rapid industrial development and social changes, and you can see this by studying the toys of the period.
Many people seem to get started with toy collecting more accidentally than deliberately. There may be the old one-eyed teddy that nobody has the heart to give away; there may be the favorite train set that brings happy memories of rainy days indoors. Or you may visit a flea market and find yourself buying a doll because it is like the one you once had.
