Toys have been an important part of childhood since early civilization, and while today’s children are very different from those of thousands of years ago, many of their favorite toys are similar to those that have existed for centuries. Already in the ancient Greek and Roman empires, children played with dolls, horses and chariots. The first toys discovered by archaeologists were all made of wood.
Wooden toys have continued to be a common part of childhood for thousands of years. In the 1700s, German toy manufacturers began making a variety of wooden toys for sale to the general public. Vendors traveled around Europe to market the popular wooden toys, taking orders in advance for special occasions and often for bespoke wooden toys. Nearly realistic dolls and animals were becoming the favorite toys of children all over Europe.
Over the next century, toy makers became more elaborate and detailed with their wooden creations. Wooden miniatures such as dollhouses and theaters became popular during the 19th century, as did wooden toy soldiers. Many wooden toys, such as the classic Jack in a box, have been hand painted in bright, vibrant colors. The wooden trains, along with their wooden tracks, were one of the best selling toys during this time period.
By the end of World War II, a number of new materials had been introduced into the manufacturing industry, including still popular plastics. The production of wooden toys has steadily declined as more and more toy manufacturers have opted for cheaper and more modern materials. Plastic toys were much easier to mass produce and were more affordable for families with children.
Today, wooden toys are rarely seen on the shelves of traditional toy stores, but the charm and charm of these childhood classics has kept numerous wooden toy manufacturers in business. You can buy a variety of wooden toys online, from miniature appliances to small gifts and games.
Wooden toys are typically simple toys that encourage a child to use their imagination. Wooden puzzles encourage children to develop cognitively and develop fine motor skills. Wooden toys and pedal cars improve physical abilities and gross motor development. Whether it’s a fire station or a farm, miniature wooden playsets help in social and emotional development. Wooden toys have a great educational value due to their simplicity.
Plastic toys are still generally less expensive than wooden toys and are considered safer by some due to the flammability of old wooden toys and possible injuries from throwing or dropping wooden objects, but wooden toys they do not contain toxic PVC like plastic toys do. Wooden toys are the most durable toys and can usually last for generations of play.
Today’s wooden toys are just as innovative, if not more so, than modern electronic toys. Wooden cars, trucks and loaders make wonderful gifts and wooden towing toys delight the little ones. Quiet games like chess and checkers, and even tic-tac-toe can be found in wood, as well as physical games like ring tossing. For toys that provide educational benefits and last for decades, choose toys that have been time tested, wooden toys.
