Children have enjoyed baseball from days past. Not only did they play baseball but also they enjoyed playing gkarutah (cards) and gmenkoh (pasteboard dump). They were enthralled by pictures of their baseball idols printed on these cards.
The exhibition displays a variety of playthings enjoyed in good old days including gsugorokuh (Japanese backgammon), gkarutah, baseball boards, gbeigomah (spinning top), gmenkoh, and baseball cards. Visitors can try playing baseball boards aside of the room.
