    Isn’t the next strip something about “waiting up a storm?”

    The idea was (and still is, for some) to emphasize that children are people. Hundreds of years ago, children were treated as small humans, and there were no books or toys made for children (except a few toys for children of the wealthy). Gradually, society decided that some things were too “adult” for children to be exposed to. It’s still an active debate (e.g.: see the reaction to the child long-distance sailor).

    That kid sounds like a 99%er waiting for his next entitlement.

    I think I recall how the reply from the school begins. Won’t spoil it.

    Given the instant availability of everything, which kids are used to today, this strip is downright prescient.

    With fingers and toes and impatience for all!”

    When and where are you discussing where there were no " toys made for children"? I have researched toys and games throughout history and have found evidence of toys and of children playing in every culture I have looked into. Granted, I have not studied every possible culture so I am curious just who were these people that did not provide children’s entertainment (toys/play) for children?
