Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

The ubiquitous cardboard box: there is no limit to the possibilities for children's play. The cardboard box was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame in 2006. Since then, hundreds of visitors to The Strong have shared memories or photographs of children at play with boxes. And this is true as far back as cardboard boxes go, including the early 1960s. A freezer box made an especially huge plaything!
