For many of those who collect and adore them, antique wooden toys are actually considered treasures and should generally be treated as expensive goods. These creations are made to entertain, animate and provide fun not only for children and teens, but also for adults who have made collecting the same as a hobby.
Antique wooden toys have been a source of entertainment and recreation for many centuries. Due to their long history, they have also evolved into several varieties. For example, the old days saw the popularity of collectibles such as German dolls, cars and other spinning toys with spinning wheels and others. In modern versions, meanwhile, there are wooden Disney characters and pop culture wooden figures used primarily for marketing and advertising. But whatever the type, the fact remains that antique wooden toys are a great option to collect.
In the process of maintaining and restoring antique wooden toys, you need to consider these basic but very useful tips:
– Try looking inside your wooden toy, be it a figure, doll or whatever and determine if there is an old string device. To do this, you need to carefully and slowly pull your head back as you look down into the toy’s inner body. You will likely find an empty space inside. Most antique wooden toys are jointed and that means the limbs and parts are likely movable. This is because they are commonly made with some rubber spool mechanism. So, you need to see if your toy also contains a bobbin or rubber band.
– Now the next thing to do is to pull the joints gently and slowly, just like you did before. You need to do this to see if the rope or cord is loose. While you are doing the same, you can also look inside and find out if there is any kind of lint located in the elastic or the edge of the toy cord. Now to rest, you can use a pair of pliers and use something like a thick rubber band or string. To do this, you need to start from the bottom. However, keep in mind that this can only be done with small toys that are a couple of inches tall. But with most original antique wooden toys, you may need to consult and get help from a professional toy restorer or expert as they probably have better tools than yours. Also keep in mind that if the doll is too tight, there is a chance that parts will be damaged in the process. So the best thing to do is to seek help from a toy restoration expert anyway.
– In addition to the restoration, it is also your job to maintain and clean your antique wooden toys in order to keep their value intact. You can seek professional and expert advice online or even at your local toy restoration shop to find out how to effectively clean and maintain your collection.
