Toys in PNG

Someone once asked me what kids play with in PNG.  Thinking about the answer made me realize how much different PNG culture is.  
Kids almost always play outdoors.  It they are lucky somebody will have a soccer ball but often the make a ball by winding plastic grocery bags up.

Another common activity is to attach a small wheel to a stick and push it around.

These boys are playing in the river with bamboo sticks tied together.

Pushing an old car tire around with wooden stick is another activity

Games are played with a long cord made of tied together grocery bags.

Most of the kids we have seen seem to be pretty content with what they have.
