"The favorite toy seems to have been a little pottery cart, to judge from the number of specimens, usually in a damaged condition, which have been found. These miniature carts are practically identical in design, on a small scale, with the farm carts seen in the villages around Mohenjo-daro today, and the presence of these toys in the city is ample proof that the full-sized vehicle was well known and in constant use in the Indus valley. No model which can be said to represent a war-chariot, or anything like it, has yet to come to light, which supports the view that these people were not war-like and were unthreatened by enemies until their civilization was nearing its end." Ernest Mackay, The Indus Civilization, 1936, p. 176.
