Wooden toys are a large category of toys with a long history. They appeared in every stage of history.  German wooden toys are famous for their distinction among all the toys. In 1700, the craftsmen there could already carve animals in batches, and shipped to Nuremberg to sell. They called these lifelike and low-priced wooden playthings Nuremberg toys.

Chinese Walking on Stilts
"Walking on Stilts", according to folktales, originated in the Spring and Autumn period (722-481 BCE) and Warring States period (481-212 BCE). Its peak of popularity was during the Sung Dynasty. "Walking on Stilts" has also been a popular type of festival dance in many places in China. You can practice all kinds of balancing methods until you are familiar with them. Striding on stilts is no easy business. It takes a certain amount of time and work to do so. It's best to have someone to stabilize the stilts for you when you first start. Practice it step by step and you will master it in time.

Brazil Walking on Stilts
Stilts are made of iron cans or milk cans fastened together with a string. We name them after Brazil because they were first used in the carnival in Brazil.

Spinning Top
The earliest Spinning Top appeared in Wei Dynasty historical records, and was called "Dule" then.  It was similar to "Qianqian" in the Song Dynasty. There were many ways to play tops. It was maids-in-waiting in the ancient imperial palace who developed the following method of play: A piece of thread was tightly wound around the top. The player held the thread with one or two fingers while the top was tossed. As the thread unwound, the top began to spin. The top which spun the longest won the game.

Diabolo
Diabolo was a popular folk activity in the north of China during the leisure seasons. Diabolo tricks diversified over time and the name varied in different places. Diabolo played an important role in our variety shows. .

Hula Hoop
Children around the world made toys out of large rings thousands of years ago. In ancient Greece, people lost weight by rotating the ring around the waist. A western voyager to Hawaii saw that the Hula dance of the Hawaiians was similar to the rotating of the ring around the waist. So they called the ring a "Hula Hoop".
