TOYS: Kids also had toys. They played with rattles and little clay animals. One of the animals was a horse on 4 wheels that could be pulled around on a string. The Greek kids played with yo-yos! They had dolls and other action figures made out of cloth and clay. They had lots of toys. Kids were expected to help in the house and in the fields, unless the family had enough slaves to do all the work. But kids had plenty of time to play.
