Additional Information: [1] Introduction to a special issue of Childhood in the Past (volume 4, issue 2, September 2014), the second issue of 2014, which presents essays on ‘Play, Toys, and Memory in International Perspective’, after the Second World War. [2] The study originated in the work of the Centre for the Study of Play and Recreation at the University of Greenwich. In May 2013, an exhibition, entitled ‘Multi-Cultural Toys’ was organised jointly with the Pollock’s Toy Museum Trust and held in the Stephen Lawrence Gallery at the Old Royal Naval College (Greenwich Campus, London, SE10 9LS) with an accompanying conference. The project aims to research the nature and uses of toys and of play in diverse cultures, past and present, as well as to campaign for contemporary children to have access to a more representative range of toys. In 2014, two subsequent conferences at Greenwich further developed some of the themes. ‘Pain Illness, Trauma and Death’ (1 February), and ‘Play, Toys, War and Conflict’ (16 May) which coincided with the lead up to the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, were both hosted jointly with the Society for the Study of Childhood in the Past.
