  • Description

    (Pathetone main titles.)

    Titles read: "Toy time! Any time of the year is toy time to the kiddies - and here are some to hand them out a thrill or a laugh!"

    Location of events unknown - probably United States of America.

    Various shots of children looking at toys. They include a mechanical singing bird in a cage, a wooden soldier with moving head, a white cat rocking a kitten to sleep, a white rabbit coming out of an egg and then going back in, a barking dog, model children dancing (looks like a toy shop display), a baby doll making a 'mama' noise, and a mechanical crocodile or alligator moving across the carpet to a crying boy - he looks rather traumatised by the whole thing! One of the children watching says "Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?", for no apparent reason.

On 18 September 2014 Scotland goes to the polls to vote on independence. To mark this and in celebration of all things Scottish, British Pathé has created Scotland: The Heritage Collection.
British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
Franz Reichelt
With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.
