Wooden Rubber Band Powered Boat: Only £4.99 from Toyday Toyshop. Toyday traditional & classic toys is an old fashioned toy shop on the high street and online. Merchants of traditional and classic toys, Toyday's focus is on good old fashioned customer service & traditional value.
Certain old fashioned toys have meaning too...it marries the simplicity, Montessori, sensory, life skills/adventure play with the kids, and rhythm of old European culture...but what the heck do they all represent? Yeah, I don't know. (Btw, if I had the money, I'd probably just buy all of this stuff, the problem being that I still wouldn't have the knowledge that they represent. It would all probably just end up never being used and collecting dust)
