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\".
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.
Now with all that youve read above do you still need a reason why wooden toys are still the best toys around?
Babies are very easy to buy toys for. Babies love bath toys and books. The best books for babies are board books that dont have pages that can be ripped. Open and close the flap books are great and books with bright colors and interesting rhymes are perfect for babies. You never want to buy toys for babies that can be choked on.
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.
