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.
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.
Many people are turning to toys which are more natural and traditional to give children an understanding of the craft and effort gone into producing them. Wooden toys are also very often of high quality and handmade. Parents also like children to play with similar types of toys that they grew up with as many of them can also be educational. When buying a Christmas or birthday present for a younger member of the family consider giving wooden toys as gifts.
