    Most of the below jugs, pots, boots, and other miniature items might be difficult to recognize as toys today, but childhood has changed remarkably in the past 120 years, in part due to the mass production of children's products, including toys. The first five and last eight marbles are made of common clay, making them known as "commies." Also found on the former site of The American Marble and Toy Manufacturing Company were early glass marbles, such as the three shown below (top row of marbles, last three on the right) -- evidence that Sam Dyke was evoking technology for the mass production these beautiful marbles as well.
