Toys of Wood

Toys have been such an important part of play since early civilization.
Archaeologists have discovered an Egyptian tiger toy which is estimated to be around 2500 years old.
Even though the approach to play in today’s civilization is very different, the toys remain very similar.
Although there are many other modern influences upon play in today’s society like the use of technology and electrical toys,
the nostalgia surrounding wooden toys still remains.
For many, wooden toys act as something which get passed on through generations and can act as an element of tradition and legacy for families.
So, what is the history of wooden toys?
The first wooden toy to be created was the rattle and as time has progressed,
this has become a very traditional element of early childhood and still is today.
In the 1700’s toymakers in Germany introduced the craft of wooden toys.
At this time, wooden toys were often handmade for special occasions,
but this concept then  started to develop across Europe with dolls and animals being popular handmade crafts at the time.
