There’s no need to reinvent the wheel: good toys never really grow old! In fact, the most traditional toys are often the ones drawing the kids’ attention.
Here’s what we have in store…
Welcome to the Dollhouse…
Those miniature homes, furnished with domestic articles and resident inhabitants, both people and animals, have been made for thousands of years. The
earliest known examples were actually found in the Egyptian tombs of the Old Kingdom, created nearly five thousand years ago. After World War II, dollhouses
became mass-produced in factories and very popular among young girls.
Our KidKraft Deluxe Townhouse includes 27 pieces of furniture and 3 mini dolls, folds up for easy storage and is made of composite wood materials:
traditionally fun, modernly handy!
Remember when children used to play at riding a wooden hobby horse made of a straight stick with a small horse’s head? Actually, the hobby horse has been
around since the XVIth century… And it’s back! Melissa and Doug Prance-N-Play Stick Horse, but also Unicorn, are perfect for all the little knights,
princesses, cowboys… and angels!
You probably know the jack-in-the-box, this tin box with a crank, that plays a melody when the crank is turned, until the lid pops open and a figure, usually
a clown or jester, pops out of the box. A theory as to the origin of the jack-in-the-box is that it comes from the 13th century English prelate Sir John
Schorne,who is often pictured holding a boot with a devil in it. The legend says he once cast the devil into a boot to protect the village of North Marston
On our shelves, Babar, Curious George, Thomas and Sock Monkey are waiting to pop out of the box! Come let them out!
