Handcrafted Wooden Toys

Before the days of factories and mass-production schedules, handcrafted wooden toys were the norm, not the exception. In fact, prior to the Industrial Revolution, if a child were lucky enough to have a toy, chances are it was handmade, most often by a relative. These toys were often cherished and handed down from one generation to the next.
Today however, handcrafted wooden toys are a bit harder to come by. Most of the toys one finds at the local toy store are made from plastic and are mass-produced by the tens of thousands. And while these toys may be popular, they lack the personal touch common to older wooden toys. Thankfully, there are some toymakers that still make unique toys by hand; one just needs to seek them out.
The Internet is often the best place to begin a search for handcrafted wooden toys. Many traditional toy makers own their own websites that allow them to sell their wares directly to the public. Photos and descriptions of each toy is almost always provided, so that one has a good idea of what is available through each website.
