Bronze Age Thracian Stork may be Oldest Children's Toy in Europe

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Local residents in the area of Zlatograd, Bulgaria, have uncovered an ancient bronze artifact that archaeologists have described as “the oldest children’s toy in Europe”. The supposed toy consists of a moveable stork’s head, with eyes made from semi-precious stones, on a tripod stand.

According to the website Archaeology in Bulgaria, the alleged toy dates back to around 1500-1200BC, a time when the Thracians, an ethno-cultural group of Indo-European tribes, were inhabiting the Balkan Peninsula. It was found, along with other archaeological artifacts, by locals near the town of Yagnevo, Zlatograd in the Rhodope Mountains, an area in which a number of Thracian sanctuaries and rock tombs have been discovered.
