Political Toys: Perón’s gifts for children, 1946-55


Full Article:

With the intention of attracting Argentinean children, the Peronist government gave away 36 million toys during its nine years in power. Looking both at the objects given away, and at the system of distribution, this paper makes a historical reconstruction of a series of events that were instrumental for the creation of a Peronist mythology and the consequent gaining of political support.
