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.
Wooden toys in particular are credited for contributing significantly to this because for one since they dont run on batteries and dont move jump skip light up talk or zip around the room on their own children are required to use their imagination and become creative by coming up with stories to go along with playing the toy and pushing or pulling it to make it move. This results in an active mind and body that eventually becomes ready to solve problems and anything else that comes their way when they get older.
So why would people prefer choosing toys made of wood as gifts instead of the more modern common plastic or electronic toys that children are so familiar with?
