KUBI DUBI WOODEN TOYS
The history of wooden toys in Russia is deeply rooted in the past and the tradition has continued from generation to generation.
Forest rich regions like the North of Russia are among the places where wooden toys were carved. Countryman, hunters and fisherman were equipped with simple tools such as an axe but they were skilled enough to build a house with their bare hands and fill it with wooden crafts, decorations, utensils and cookware.
As for toys, they were made on the go, for fun. Figurines of horses, birds, people and other objects are just some of the ancient wooden toys that were made in Russia’s North.
They were also believed to be carriers of supernatural powers and even today, there is a still a strong sense of something beautiful and magical about them.
In the regions surrounding the main roadways and river-ways, there were plenty of trade possibilities and toy making became a thriving craft industry. The Volga region was one of them and the local artisans had a special love and appreciation for wood.
They wouldn't carve their toys out of solid piece of lumber. Dolls, for example, were made from firewood pieces. Their back was round while the front side remained flat. Carriages and wagons were made out of thin planks and held together with the help of tiny nails.
