Jiao Li Chinese traditional toys and games
When I was a baby, my parents always used the drum to make me laugh or stop my crying
I didn’t have money to buy play dough, so mud became my play dough. Mud is a good toy to help me to explore the world.
When my mom gave me some pocket money (usually 10 Chinese cents), I would go with my friend to buy a flour puppet. It was one of the happiest moments in my childhood.
Another happy moment is to playing cards with my fellows.
Yo-Yo is a popular kids game in China. It is played in the string, and the two ends of the string are attached to two sticks. So the player moves the two sticks to control the yo-yo.
CHINESE CHECKERS IS A BOARD GAME played by 2 to 6 players. The object of the game is to move all your marbles (or pegs) into the opposite point of the board. It was a good memory between my best friend in the elementary school and me. But, the sad thing was that she was always the winner .
This type of Chinese checker is more challenging than the previous one, but I love it more, because I enjoy the sense of achievement My father was my teacher of this game.
Shuttlecock kicking, Ti Jian Zi, is another traditional popular folk game. Some records date its origin as far back as the Han Dynasty (206BC-220AD). Before high school, I always had one in my backpack. It’s convenient to play, for only a very small area is needed to kick the shuttlecock, and it can be practiced just about anywhere and anytime.
It was a good team-game at the playground with my friends.
The game of Mah Jong has become ever so popular for hundreds of years in China. However, it is not my game. Instead, it was my parents’ game. Sometimes, they could play it for the whole night. I was very excited when they played this game, because I could do anything I wanted to do
Chinese traditional toys and games are products of Chinese culture. They are a unique expression of my cultural-related childhood.
