Children's Games and Pastimes

Poster for Children's Games and Pastimes Exhibition

Children’s Games and Pastimes (2006) drew principally on the John Johnson, Harding and Opie Collections. The display, in the Bodleian’s Exhibition Room, included board games, paper dolls and protean figures, engraved writing blanks, alphabets, metamorphoses, jigsaws, writing and drawing materials, and a toy theatre.

Many of the Games in the Collection are digitised. Records and images are available through the Oxford Digital Library and through the Johnson online catalogue
