Much like wooden trucks and trains, wooden toy boats have a long history of entertaining children. Like their automobile counterparts, these toys are available in a wide variety, ranging from simple sailboats to replicas of military aircraft carriers. These toys are also available in mass-produced designs as well as custom, one-of-a-kind toys.
The bathtub is often the preferred playground when it comes to wooden toy boats. Just about everyone can remember playing with a toy boat or other floating toys while taking a bath as a child. And while most of the boat toys one finds at a local toy store are made from plastic, wooden boats have a timeless appeal that cannot be duplicated by artificial materials.
In today’s modern world, most wooden toy boats are mass-produced in factories, mostly from overseas. However, that does not mean that unique, handcrafted boat toys have become extinct, as there are many companies that take great pride in their handmade toys. Most of these companies offer websites that can be found through a simple search of the Internet.
