Introduction
Picture of Girls Playing Jump Rope

.

Children from all over the world have enjoyed playing with toys throughout time. Many of our classic toys and puzzles evolved from what was naturally available or from what the adults could dream up. The wooden toys in this collection are made with string, cord, rope, or ribbon. These toys are kid powered, use the imagination, and develop coordination or motor skills. Similar toys have been found in ancient Greece, Africa, Australia, England, France, and even the Arctic polar region. Native Americans, New World colonists, and children in the Victorian era have played with these types of toys for generations. Our toys and puzzles feature the history in every package. We hope you will enjoy our offering of historical toys and puzzles, which delight children (and many adults) today!
