World War II Toys
I wanted to show a few more items from the Florida State University Institute on World World II and the Human Experience exhibit I attended last weekend. The first picture shows a cloth Army soldier dressed in khaki wearing an officer's cap. Dolls were frequently made of cloth during the war due to rationing of materials. The second picture shows toy soldiers originally purchased in Canada because rationing in the United States made it difficult to obtain toys made out of metal. Tomorrow I will show a few more items that are definitely not toys!
