Toy horse, Greek, dated around 10BC.  Ancient Greek children had an assortment of toys to choose from, such as dolls, marbles, dice, and the yo-yo. Gender stereotypes, social interaction and role play could be reinforced through play. Monkeys, birds, dogs and cheetahs were also kept as pets.  The children normally spent their early childhood in the women’s quarters, and at the age of around 7, boys started going to school whilst the girls stayed at home to learn the women’s duties.
