historical folk toys


Homestead Folk Toys offers a wide variety of nostalgic books ranging in topics from old-time toys and games to early education, manners and morals and many craft books. All of the books in the Homestead Publications series were penned by George A. Rice, our chief toy-maker, musician and folklorist and have been widely distributed for many, many years and continue to be best-sellers. Living history museums and Victorian museums alike sell and continue to re-order these popular books!
