game

A small, simple, and fun horse race game that comes from a tradition, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, of simple tin toys. Although they were often inexpensive, they might have great play value. A type of game that occurs throughout history to the present is the horse race game or steeplechase game. This tiny tin horse race is the simplest version. Give 'er a spin!
