今日小常識

Factory-made toys, including tin toys and clockwork toys, went on sale in Britain in the 19th century. Other popular toys were alphabet bricks, sailing boats, jigsaw puzzles and Noah's Arks. In many homes, children were not allowed toys on Sundays - except Noah's Ark, because that was in the bible.

工廠預制的玩具,包括錫玩具和發條玩具都發售於19世紀的英國。其它受歡迎的玩具還有字母磚、帆船、拼圖和諾亞的方舟。很多家庭都不允許孩子們在星期天這天玩兒玩具,不過諾亞的方舟除外,因為它是出現在聖經裏的故事。
