今日小常识

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.

工厂预制的玩具,包括锡玩具和发条玩具都发售于19世纪的英国。其它受欢迎的玩具还有字母砖、帆船、拼图和诺亚的方舟。很多家庭都不允许孩子们在星期天这天玩儿玩具,不过诺亚的方舟除外,因为它是出现在圣经里的故事。
