By the beginning of the eighteenth century in Britain, parents and teachers had begun to wholeheartedly embrace a suggestion from the philosopher John Locke (1632–1704) that “Learning might be made a Play and Recreation to Children.” The material culture of this period and the subsequent generation reveal a significant shift in thinking, as adults found fresh value in childhood and in play for its own sake.
