June Nerd Nite on the Rocks

Rick Rentz

Rick started out as a child, and hasn’t really grown up because he’s still plays with toys! Ancient toys began with rocks and sticks. Stones were used to build cairns, play catch, and skim on water. Sticks could be made into spears among other things, and sticks that you could throw and would come back to you were called boomerangs. When people began to make strings, it opened up a whole new world of toys. Buzz toys, bullroarers, and diablos were all made with strings. Rick will give us a closer look at some of these toys and more.
