Well, this article pretty much does what it says on the tin. I am glad to say that we have almost, almost finalised the project brochure, and it will be going to the printers very soon. So watch this space.
I have thoroughly enjoyed working on this particular sub-project because it has been challenging, but at the same time, very rewarding. One of the biggest challenges was condensing the huge amount of information our volunteers have collected over the course of the project as a whole into 20 pages. Equally challenging was trying to figure out the ‘voice’ of the Best Days of Our Lives. If this project was a famous person or car, who do you think it would be?
I hope the brochure will be well received. I hope it will trigger off happy memories and discussion about toys, games and ways of playing back in ‘the good ol’ days’ and the different types of play across
the world. Even better, I hope some of you will revive these games and share them with others.
The brochure, and indeed the project as a whole, would not have been possible without the input of the volunteers and all of those we interviewed. I’m very grateful for the material you have provided us in the form of copy, research and interviews. Thank you. And also to the wonderful illustrations of Estelle Morris.
