The Xbox and iPad generation went low tech, to get their hands on rather more hands on kind of toys.
It is all part of the countdown to the opening next spring of the highly anticipated new £12.4 million Dunfermline Carnegie Library and Galleries.
Now the work is well underway in the heart of the historic quarter of the Auld Grey Toun, the team behind the project is offering local pupils an exciting trip down memory lane.
And they are opening up the toy boxes former generations of children may have played with.
Youngsters from McLean Primary School were given a series of special boxes on loan from Dunfermline Carnegie Library and Galleries filled with a variety of nostalgic items such as the types of toys their grandparents might have played with in the 1950s.
The post-war memorabilia, including skipping ropes and a mohair teddy bear called Mo, reflect the content which will feature in the exhibition space in the main part of the museum when the state-of-the-art facility opens at the start of next year.
Six themes will be explored within the space including industry, transport, recreation and culture, homes, two world wars and Dunfermline as a centre of royal and religious power.
Tracy Lee, who is currently on a work placement at the cultural complex, played a leading role in the initiative.
She said: The school loan boxes project is such a great one to be involved in and the schoolchildren were absolutely mesmerised by the toys.
“It is a really good way to engage children in social history and of course it also helps to build anticipation for when the new Dunfermline Carnegie Library and Galleries opens its doors next year.”
McLean Primary School teacher Barbara Kilpatrick said that young pupils in primary three and primary five had thoroughly enjoyed working with the museum staff and felt honoured to be the first classes to try out the new loan boxes.
“The pupils were engaged with the artefacts and activities and we are all excited about the creation of a new museum in Dunfermline.
“This project has been a fantastic opportunity for us both to work cross sector and the new resources created will be a valuable tool for learning.”
Three prototypes of the school loan boxes will be tested with teachers and their classes during the course of 2016 to make sure they are fun and easy to use ahead of the programme being rolled out in 2017.
