AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Children's PLAYMATE Magazine TheTail of Peter Rabbit a Game

game | page

Somtimes games take the simplest form. A 1957 children's magazine printed a page to cut out and mount on the wall, with a separate tail to mount on cloth, then place a pin through. Children take turns trying to pin the tail on Peter Rabbit. Later 20th century safety concerns made games like this obsolete. New materials such as Velcro make safer attachments.
