Synopsis
Jew's harp has a lot in common with limberjack, spinning tops and rocking horses; they are all very simple wooden toys with which Canadian children played in the nineteenth century. Many of these toys are presented in the film. The protagonists are children who invent a thousand games with these toys. The aim of the film is to show how Canadian children enjoyed themselves in the last century and also to show that basically they are only the imagination and inventiveness of the boys who give life to their games.
