Photopacks

The educational resource group TTS in conjunction with the museum have produced Photopacks of toys from the 1950's, 60's, 70's and 80's. Each decade pack includes 10 A4 sized picture cards and teacher's notes covering typical popular toys of the period.

The packs can be used in a variety of ways and are suitable for children and students of all ages. Some examples being comparing then and now, materials used in their construction and the mechanisms that make them work as well as providing stimulation for discussion, drawing, writing, etc. right up to design technology - their use is only limited by your imagination.

The packs, shown below, are available from TTS, Nunn Brook Road, Huthwaite, Sutton-in-Ashfield, NG17 2HU.
