This is the first British study of its kind which focuses on toys made for girls including the spin-off accessories. Susan Brewer explores the world of girls' toys, dividing the book into sections to encompass many kinds; dolls, houses, prams, cuddly toys, outdoor toys, traditional playthings and character toys such as Sylvanian Families, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, Flower Fairies. She includes brief biographies of some of the best known firms, amongst them Chad Valley, Hornby, Britain's, Pedigree and Fisher Price but the main focus is on the toys themselves, many of which readers will remember from their own childhood.
