Do you remember toys without batteries? Well theyre still being made! Toys that our grandparents and parents played with are still available but you wont be able to purchase quality built ones at your large box stores.
Wooden toys go back as far as ancient Greek and Roman civilization with archeologists digging up wooden toys that are shaped like horses dolls and chariots indicating how simple and uncomplicated life was back then. They had also unearthed in Egypt what looked like the wooden version of checkers dating back 4000 years. The first puzzle invented in fact was made of wood and it was invented by John Spilsbury in 1760. A mapmaker by profession Spilsbury glued cut up pieces of a map onto a wooden board with the intention of putting them back together in the soonest possible time.
While marble rollers are for children over 3 years of age we do have a great one for the real little tykes! This one is great for even a one year old but older ones love it too. It comes with 12 large colored wooden balls and they zip down the roller and stay in the wooden tray. We are the only store that carries this item and there have been so many little kids who enjoy this game. The balls are painted with safe non toxic paint and come in red orange yellow green blue and purple. These also help children recognize colors. The opening is large enough for them to drop the ball down and theyll enjoy the sound of dropping balls! The wooden ball roller is a unique wooden toy!
