ACHAC collection
Series VI. Toys and games, 1892-1941 16 items
This small series, made up of cut-out paper toys, paper toys with movable parts, board games and other objects, shows how colonial and conquest imagery was employed in mass-produced playthings for French children in the first half of the 20th century. A strong propagandistic function was in many cases paired with an advertising one, as some toys bear brand names for chocolate or baby food, or even for aperitifs.
Arrangement is chronological; undated materials are listed at the end.
