Until the mid-1800s, most children's toys were homemade, often whittled from a chunk of wood on a winter's night. Later came a wide variety of toys, from rocking horses to porcelain dolls to automated coin banks to magic lanterns. Read about these 19th-century playthings, photographed from toy museums.
