100 years ago? Hard to say. At that time most people lived in poverty in the country. People worked all day to landlord for a plate of food and some money or products for family, products not arrived two days if the family was large.
Children were usually abandoned by the yard, most children do not have a child, they are forced to work together with their mother or father.
On rare occasions, or wealthy families, children invented all sorts of imaginative games. Has read "Memories of Childhood" by Ion Creanga.
