- Wooden Toys - the Most Durable Toys in the World
- First, how did wooden toys come about? Wooden toys exist because thatĄ¯s the most readily available material, and toys can be produced simply with a carving knife. The price of a wooden toy depends very much on its age and general condition. The older it is, and the better the overall condition, the more valuable it will be. In terms of price, wooden toys cannot match plastic toys upfront, as itĄ¯s cheaper to produce plastic toys. However, wooden toys often last much longer, resulting in substantial savings in the long run. Wooden toys traditionally started out to be cheaper than all other toys. But as technology evolves, plastic eventually starts to replace wood when it comes to making toys. Hence, many toy makers switched to plastic. So if the decision to buy a toy is based on price alone, then perhaps plastic toys will win this battle. But often, toys mean more than just money alone. Today, the price of a piece of wooden toy rises in proportion to the time and skill required to make the toy. In other words, the more time and skill needed, the higher the price. Still, people continue to buy wooden toys because they are suitable for everyone. Whether you are an adult or a young child, you will fall in love with tiny wooden toys, as they are just too adorable to resist. Wooden toys are also suitable for both boys and girls. There are toys like toy cars and toy furniture that are suitable for both genders. Children love wooden toys because they can play with them both indoors and outdoors.

For an avid toy collector, there are many different types of wooden toys to choose from. But what makes a wooden toy a desirable artifact to collect?
