In the late 1800s and early 1900s, children played with toys that trained them for their future jobs as adults. Girls’ toys replicated their mothers’ work of raising children and making a home. Helen Hunt Learned (b. 1878) of Arlington, Massachusetts, transported her dolls in this stylish wicker carriage.
