The aim of this article is to show the playground of children from landowning families during the
second half of the nineteenth and the early twentieth century. An attempt was made to present the
playgrounds of wealthy children, their characteristics, space, and also to determine the place and
role of play in the lives of children of landowners. The types of games for children, both boys and
girls have been presented. Also children’s toys were made the subject of research. The conclusions
presented have been based entirely on the analyses of diaries, memoirs and biographies of the
representatives of landowning class.
