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 these are for kids they can bring back memories for older people. There is even a desk top version that can be a real conversation piece from years gone by. Its great for an office desk to take one back in time to \"yesterday\".
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.
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.
There are a wide variety of wooden toys available which can suit all ranges. Young children may appreciate for example play vehicles like fire engines stacking bricks and rings and miniature play sets. Older children may prefer marble runs build sets and even creative items such as carpenter sets.
