Ring Toss by William Merritt Chase, 1896

A ring toss is a game where rings are tossed around a peg.[1] It is common at carnivals.[2] A variant, sometimes referred to as "ring-a-bottle", replaces pegs with bottles, where the thrower may keep the bottle (and its contents) if successful.[3]

Ring toss is also a game for toddlers and children that can assist in the development of motor skills and hand-eye coordination development.[4][5]
