Spinning tops to Football tops sessions!

27 November 2012

Fancy a blast from the past? Get involved in the sessions and we'll bring back the toys that meant so much back in the day.

Toys have been around for generations. Yes, they may have gone from the yoyo complete with quality tense string to Apple’s iPad complete with touch screen and downloadable apps, but toys have always been and always will be a huge part in people’s childhoods, no matter what era they grew up in.

And on Saturday morning January 14th the RUCST will launch its FREE ‘Spinning Tops to Football Tops’ sessions that will focus on looking at those different toys from the 1940s right up to the 1990s, and it will look at how toys have changed and altered over the years.

So, if you’ve got any great memories of toys that made your childhood worthwhile from the 1940s then come on down and relive those special times. In fact, while you’re at it, bring the grandkids with you. They might just have a very different view on what the greatest childhood gift is. Twister anyone?

You’ll even get the chance to produce your very own comic book together about the very toys that mean so much.

If this sounds like your cup of tea, then get yourself to the Mawbury Gardens Community Library.
