“Pete” is attached to the small block by a spring, so when you tap him he rocks back and forth as he slides down the pole.

Classic wooden toys for all
Toys are not only for kids. Adults need relaxation and the memories beloved toys can bring back to their memories. I still have in my room the Rubik’s Cube which I managed only once to solve and numerous times I thought of taking off its colored rectangular stickers and placing each color on every side. I never actually did it because I was afraid of the consequences if I destroyed my father’s favorite toy. When I understood that solving the cube requires some planning and problem-solving skills, I was determined to succeed and I still remember the joyful screaming when I managed to “solve” its mystery; probably by accident. Since then, I have been catching myself thinking of my favorite old toys, like Lego and Playmobil, not very girly I know, and recapturing the times I was playing in our then common room with my brother.
Toys are used in play by children, adults, and pets. The difference a toy has from a game is that toy play does not have clearly defined goals; that is if you do not play with my brother. Today, huge toy chains, like “Toy-R-Us,” carry a vast assortment of different toys for any age and background, covering the needs of children and parents. But while parents spend a small fortune on acquiring the latest model of their son’s favorite car toy, the young boy will continue to play with the old one and although he will at the beginning be extremely happy with his new possession, the old car that misses a wheel and a door will never leave its bed.
The explanation for this type of behavior is rather simple. In fact, if you try to recall your favorite toy while you were a kid, you will probably remember that its prime time had long passed, but you continued holding it in your arms as you fell asleep. Some people state that their favorite ‘toy’ was not even a regular purchased toy. Any item in the house that a kid for some reason will pick up, toss in the air or play around with can become a toy. As long as children’s imagination is at work, even a rubber band or a pillow can become a toy with which a child will feel a close connection.
Finally, today’s commercialization has introduced another type of toys that are not intended as play toys, but rather as collector items for adults. People around the globe collect these types of toys and constitute a niche (specific target) market audience for manufacturers. But whether you are currently a collector or not, remembering your old toys and the enthusiasm with which you played with them can only bring a smile to your face which will last as long as your happy memory.
