Vintage toys and their modern lookalikes can bring back memories of our own childhoods and allow us to pass on those lovely times to our own children. They also make beautiful heirloom gifts for children, babies, and parents-to-be.
Made to last, durable vintage toys and modern ones that are styled after them can be played with or displayed as décor on the nursery shelf.Vehicle toys are one of the most traditional toys out there, and the styles have changed just as much as full-sized vehicles have! The Hikoki Propeller Pullback Plane, made of wood and designed with a retro look, is as much a functional toy with a pullback engine as it is a beautiful decoration.
Pullback toys are the pre-battery version of today’s motorised car; they're quieter and easier to maintain. Pullback wooden cars come in a variety of colours and designs from pink or yellow to polka dot.
For an American mid-century inspired design, check out the wooden cars by Candylab. Designs include a taxi, a "woodie" station wagon, a school bus, and a taco truck.
Some vintage toys were based on real-life items that hardly exist anymore. Instead, tablets and flat screens have stolen the show. Give a retro-inspired toy to parents-to-be at a baby shower to get them excited for the new baby and remembering their own childhoods. The Wakka water game is a family favourite and ideal for keeping kids entertained.
The Gatcha Gatcha gumball machine dispenses a colourful bead made of beech wood when you turn the star. It's great for inspiring imaginative play or displaying on a shelf out of reach of young children.
What kid didn't have a kaleidoscope back in the day? The Kaleidoscope Camera has endless artistic displays in the viewfinder and makes a great intro to cameras for young kids with big imaginations.
Maileg soft toys and rattles have a retro-inspired design and feel hand-made just for your child. They'd make a great first cuddly toy or soft rattle for a new baby, or a special toy friend for a toddler.
