Traditional Games Children Played

While I was at the National Museum in Kuala Lumpur, I took many photos. Too many to release them in just a few posts, so I will need some time to release them part by part. Today's post is sharing some of the traditional games children played in the old days. These days most children do not know how to play these games, because they are only interested in playing e-games using their smartphones, tablets or other electronic devices.
 Children playing "masak-masak" as they watch adult cooking in the kitchen. The 2 items displayed are the old fashioned tools for pounding (left) and grinding (right). 
 A "Beatles" fan playing guitar.
 Make-up games.
 Traditional games e.g. top spinning, playing checkers, picture cards, etc.
 Our version of "piggy banks"
 Tops.
 Bubble gums
 Home made toy
 The life of a kampung (village) boy.
An old fashioned man bicycle.
I first learned to cycle on this type of bike.
There was one time I fell and both my knees were badly wounded.


"Come, let us return to the LORD.

He has tore us to pieces but he will heal us;

he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds.

After two days he will revive us;

on the third day he will restore us,

that we may live in his presence.

(Hosea 6:1-2, New International Version-NIV)

  3. It is good to get children away from the screen to play games, my children loved to play outdoors. While i'm not familiar with masak-masak, i do recognize checkers, that is a favorite.

    1. Outdoor games are good for interaction and much healthier than screen games.

  8. It's a fact that the most played-with 'toy' in my house is the ipad.

    Oh the comic-style presentation at the museum is not bad at all.

  9. Oh the bubble gums! So fun to play when I was a kid, but my parents were always cautious as they are afraid that we might swallow the bubble gums accidentally
