What did you play with when you were a kid, Dad?

My daughter (7) asked me what technology is. What a great question.

She also asked me what I played with as a kid if technology is such a recent invention, implying that before gadgets, there were no toys and all we did was homework and chase ants in our back yard. For kids today, technology doesn’t actually mean anything, because it is so integrated into their lives. For them it is a utility.
I was besotted with Subbuteo, played every day, that was action at its best. I would glue and reglue them until they were standing on their knees, but the matches were thrilling.
They still make it today, and I even purchased a ‘policeman-and-streaker-box-set’ not long ago. Ah, the good old days.
