Vintage Japanese Toys

In Japan toys are made of simple materials and enjoyed by all classes of people who brought them home for their children. All these imaginative and often interactive toys were conceived and made by woodworkers, (Kiji-shi), many of whom were given the title and status of “Living Treasures” by the Japanese government. Japanese toys span an unparalleled gamut—from a centuries-long practice of traditional Kokeshi doll making to whimsical folk art toys.
