Pollux, Onomasticon About Play and Games - 16/04/2019, Fribourg (Switzerland)

The current lecture examines Greek children’s toys in terms of their cultural “biographies”. Toys may have specific meanings when they ate designed and produced, while they may acquire other meanings during their trajectory through distribution, advertising and retailing. These meanings are further reworked by the consumers and users of toys: children, their peers, their teachers and their families during play. Further meanings may be attached to toys when they are outgrown by children. Several possibilities are opened when a child’s collection of toys is dissolved marking a contemporary rite of passage to adolescence. Toys during this process of separation from childhood may in fact acquire second lives: They can be offered as gifts to other children, charity or museums, they may be thrown away and become commodities again by entering the second hand market or they may be preserved as souvenirs of childhood or symbols of family ties
