TCHOTCHKES

In the 1930s and 1940s, children did not have a multitude of toys to choose from. Surviving the depression and recycling many of the materials they did own for the war efforts depleted many toy supplies. The toys that were available were out of their price range. What were children to do? A lot of kids made their own toys, costumes, and what-not from items around their house.

This is the basis of my line of wooden toys. They are made from clothespins, toothpicks, wood scraps, and felt depicting comic book characters from that time. Each is heavily articulated and handcrafted.
