Hey everyone,

I'd like to share an article I wrote based on an undergraduate research project on material culture. It is about childhood toys and play practices that persist into adulthood, so it deals a lot with the importance of objects in social relations, family storytelling, and age/growing old. You can read it here, I'd love to hear feedback!
