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.
There are many different types of marble rollers available. Some are a single run and another kind is a double run marble roller. This is great for 2 people to have a contest to see who can get the marbles down the roller the quickest.
Toddler are just learning how to get around. Push toys are great to help them stay steady and to be more mobile. You should make sure not to get toys for toddlers that could possibly be choked on as they still put a variety of things in their mouth.
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.
All of our marble rollers or as some call them marble runs are handmade in a nearby Amish shop in Indiana. They come natural or we can put a clear finish on them and they all come with a handmade bag of marbles except the wooden ball roller which comes with 12 balls.
