Swings existed on the island of Crete at 1600 BCE, and Trainers, or knucklebones, a game which involves tossing and catching five or even more jackstones, was performed in ancient Greece.

These changes were followed by fresh ethnic and trade ties with different societies, and, consequently, different toys (e.g., the kite from China) were introduced. Video and computer engineering has also spawned a new generation of digital games.
Kids learn how to play primarily in their parents or other adults. Play frequently supplies a training ground where a child learns to build abilities which are useful later in life.
