Step into a time before smartphones, television, cars, or even the toilet; then learn about the major invention or discovery that changed the world.

Explore bright, detailed, humorous scenes from different eras that will spark discussion and make you think about what life was like in history. Learn about the clever inventors, the accidental discoveries, and how people managed without the everyday things that we take for granted.

  • Detailed, humorous scenes of different eras to explore 
  • Key topics of science, technology, and inventions
