'What did children do before TV?'
CHILDREN are set to be spellbound as a museum club for youngsters holds a "History of Toys" event.
Bourne Hall Museum, in Ewell, tells us that boys and girls will have the chance to travel back through the centuries and discover what children used to play with before the invention of televisions, computers and electronic games.
Beginning with toys enjoyed by Roman children, the young people will be told how we can see how some toys have changed through the ages while others survive.
The young audience will be able to discover what toys and games might have kept a young King Henry VIII or Queen Victoria amused.

They will learn how the introduction of mass production and new materials by the Victorians increased the variety of toys on offer and how both World Wars, with rationing and shortages of everything, changed the way children played.
The event is to be held on Saturday June 9 from 1 to 2.30pm
The cost per child is £4.
