I am able to offer items for exhibition from the story of Roberts Brothers of Gloucester, on which I have published two substantial books. The company’s products were probably in most homes between the wars, when they were said to be the largest makers of games in the British Empire. The collection extends from about 1890 to 1957 when the company’s Gloucester factory finally closed, and includes staples such as Snap, Snakes and Ladders, Ludo and Happy Families, as well as games invented and only made by the company.

I can also hire out material suitable for an exhibition on the way in which families cared for children in the 16th- and 17th- centuries.

Don’t hesitate to contact me to find out more or to talk about your wants.
