Old & New

Hello from the History Team!

We wondered if this week you would like to have a look at some old and new toys?

Below is a communication board, can you tell us which items are old and which are new?






Is an Xbox old or new?

If you aren’t sure, you could ask the grown ups in your family, ‘were there Xbox’s when you were little?’.








What about an Etch a Sketch? Old or New?

If you aren’t sure, have a think, have you ever seen one of these before?








It’s Slime! Do you have slime at home? Is it Old or New?









This is a Yo-yo, do you think it is old or new?

Have a guess, maybe you could ask your grandparents if they recognise this one!





maybe you could sort them into this table?

You could have a look online for some of the others we included, do you think they are old or new?

log into Twinkl and have a look at this resource for even more Old and New toys

  1. Thank you for this history learning. There weren’t any Xboxes when we were young. Mr Houghton had a Sega Mega Drive.
