The days of war were played out by children with life like soldiers, in their living rooms and playrooms.
These are some very rare french soldiers that children played with, probably very well off children that had the very best. The last picture is of a band.
Some of these go for as much as $5000.00 dollars a set.
As a child I remember having war sets that depicted the army and we would play for hours our little war games. You can not find them as easily as we did in the 60's.
