Now with all that youve read above do you still need a reason why wooden toys are still the best toys around?
From wooden puzzles toys evolved to something more elaborate during the Victorian era where grown women became obsessed over wooden doll houses that were made with marble and ivory and intricately detailed to resemble a real house and it even reached a point where it actually cost as much as a real house. Another kind of wooden toys that became popular especially during the Middle Ages were wooden puppets which ventriloquists would show off at street-side carnivals and the Lincoln Logs which were notched miniature logs that can be used to build miniature forts and buildings and are still around to this day. The Lincoln Logs were invented by John Lloyd Wright in 1916 and was patterned after the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo which was designed by his father architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
Older children are great at playing pretend. A great toy for kids of this age are dress up clothes. Little girls like to dress up as their favorite princess and pretend they are going to marry a handsome prince. Little Adventures has a great line of princess dress up costumes from Sleeping Beauty to Belle and best of all they are machine washable and comfortable to wear and wont itch your child. Little boys usually like to dress up as race car drivers or superheroes. Some may like to dress up like Harry Potter a wizard or a prince. Make sure you find a good quality costume that wont fall apart. Plastic costumes are out they fall apart or break after one or two wears.
Another kind that many people havent seen is a marble tower. Its rectangular in shape and the marbles start at the top and go around and around the tower. Its a good way to see how fast one can move to get the marbles back to the top.
When you are looking for toys that will both challenge your child and enhance his or her manual dexterity you owe it to yourself to see what you can find when it comes to construction toys. While you might not find what you are looking for right away take a look at the innovative toys that are offered in Europe like the KAPLA Building Planks and CLICS. Take a look around and dont let these valuable development years pass by without comment. This is a great time to enhance your childs reflexes so dont let them pass you both by!
