Roman wooden horse, Troy sends its greetings!
To produce a wooden horse requires a lot of feeling. Wood is a living material and delights us humans again and again. The ancient Romans also discovered this and already made toys for their children.
The history of the wooden horseIn the British Museum in London, one can admire an original wooden horse from Roman times. With this wooden horse the Roman children played the heroic story of Troy with Achilles, Oddysseus, and the Trojan horse with great enthusiasm.
- Length of the wooden horse approx. 26cm
- height ca 20cm
- Natural solid wood
- with long jute cord
The Trojan horse is a mobile toy with 4 wheels. On a long jute string the child can pull the wooden horse behind him. It is 20 cm high and made of natural solid wood and is therefore also very stable for smaller children.
There are many stories and children's films about the Trojan horse. The children can reenact the story. The wooden horse helps you to move around and to grasp a small part of the story. A great effect is playing in a group with this horse. Especially children in the kindergarten are enthusiastic about the wooden horse. If one shows the child before a DVD of this history or reads out a book of it, after imitation effect is particularly large. The parents and educators accumulate, how they feel the history and let thereby their imagination free run.
It is amazing how children playfully pass their time with the wooden horse, both then and now. If this horse is damaged, dad can repair it or give it a new look. The children can be happy again and play with this horse again and again. This toy is inheritable from generation to generation and has thus written family history over generations. If your family does not own such a wooden horse yet, then I advise you to buy this horse as well as possibly a DVD and give it to the child for Christmas or birthday.
No children's toy! Not suitable for small children. May only be used under the supervision of an adult.
