Games We Played

Have games really changed over time or do we just play differently?

This practical hands-on programme allows students to experience a variety of Māori and European toys and games, ranging from tākaro ā-ringa (hand games) to thaumatropes (spinning toys). The focus is on the similarities and differences between traditional Māori and European toys and games, and also provides an opportunity to view and discuss objects on display.
