Handcrafted wood toys are unique items, one of a kind and are built to last. Quality handcrafted wood toys can stay in the family for generations, being passed down and enjoyed.
Handcrafted wood toys have always had a sense of mystery and magic. None more so than marionettes, or puppets, as they are more commonly known. The most famous magical marionette was Pinocchio, and most children know the enchanting story of the puppet coming to life and yearning to become a real boy. Having your child play with a marionette will encourage them to use their imagination, to create an alternate world containing characters of their own imagining. Encourage your child to put on a puppet show for your family, or the child's friends. This will lead to them creating a whole story and possibly creating and constructing scenery for the performance.
Handcrafted wood toys are put together with more care than machine manufactured plastic toys. The Amish are famous for handcrafting wood and are known for taking time and care to produce quality items. There are Amish made handcrafted wood toys that are simple and stunningly crafted. A marble machine is one such toy. With no electrical parts and only using gravity, the marbles will journey through cogs, race down gutters and balance on beams. These toys make a great addition to a child's desk or your office space.
With handcrafted wood toys you are making an investment. The toy is going to be around for years to come and nothing brings more joy and happy memories than seeing the next generation enjoying a toy that you loved so much.
