A classic Tudor times toy, common amongst children from poorer backgrounds
Lathe turned ‘Wooden Babies’ were fairly common playthings for girls during the late Medieval and Tudor periods.
Usually turned from English Oak, they were, at first, made for children by craftsmen relatives in their spare time. After a time, professional toy
makers made them in quantity to be sold at fairs, markets and by peddlers.
