Toys in the Age of Wonder by Mark Rich Pdf

By the middle 1800s, toys were appearing in forms that drew upon--and that inspired--advances in areas such as optics, biology, geography, transportation, and automation. In these decades, too, a new type of wonder tale was being brought to maturity by a Poe-inspired Jules Verne. The modern wonder tale's highly-charged vision expressed the hopes and the fears, and the delights and the traumas, engendered by "new worlds idealism"--that Western pursuit of both mechanical and geographical conquest. Exploring realms belonging to childhood, literature, science, and history, this innovative study weaves together the histories of wonder tales and children's toys, focusing specifically on their modern aspects and how they reflect and express the social attitudes of that time period beginning around 1859 and ending around 1957.

Timeless Toys by Tim Walsh Pdf

The book Why Didn't I Think of That! includes the passage "If a toy has magic, when people see it they say, 'Oooh! What is that?' . . . It appeals to the kid in everybody." That same kind of magic captures "the kid in everybody" when they pick up Timeless Toys: Classic Toys and the Playmakers Who Created Them. Timeless Toys represents one of the finest documentaries and displays of modern toys ever written. Author Tim Walsh, a successful toy inventor himself, reveals a world of commerce, toys, and wonder that is equally fun, fascinating, and nostalgic. Readers of every age and background will find it impossible to pick up this book, turn a few pages, and not become spellbound by its insightful stories and the personal memories that the text and 420 brilliantly colored photographs bring forth. Slinky, Lego, Tonka trucks, Monopoly, Big Wheel, Frisbee, Hula Hoop, Super Ball, Scrabble, Barbie, Radio Flyer Wagons: All of these and many, many more are featured in this fascinating tome, along with the toys' histories, insider profiles, and rare interviews with toy industry icons. It's simply magic!

Renaissance of Wonder by Marion Lochhead Pdf

"A literary rebirth of wonder has produced an outpouring of imaginative books filled with elves, gnomes, dragons, giants, and unicorns. From the movemen'ts dawn-song or prelude in Granny's Wonderful Chair to such contemporary tales as Watership Down, fantasy writers have thrown open 'magic casements' on worlds filled with marvels, fresh insights, and a very special joy. Now Marion Lochhead's charming and enlightening Renaissance of Wonder reveals the nineteenth-century roots and modern flowering of such fantasy and faery literature. Renaissance of Wonder begins with a study of the achievement of George MacDonald, one of the key figures in this movement. Marion Lochhead then traces the development of the genre through the writings of Juliana Ewing, Mrs. Molesworth, Mary de Morgan ('Mrs. Oakchest'), E. Nesbit, Rudyard Kipling, John Masefield, and Walter de la Mare. The book culminates in brilliant studies of the major contributions of J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis." --
