Home made Toys

In the townland of Knockadoo where I live toys are usually home-made. The toy I know best is a ball. Firstly a sheet of paper is got and it is made in the shape of a ball. Then rubber is rolled around it and it is stuck with solution and left in the everun of a house to season. That is the way a ball is made in Knockadoo.
