Reminiscent German Toys Get Warm Welcome

Posted on by 0 comment

In Germany, people, children or adult, have a good habit to take good care of their old toys.

Children are taught in the kindergarten to do their hand-craft work with useless materials. It is a very typical behaviour that children use their disposed bottles and small collections to make a picture. They use the plasticene of blue color to make the “sea” on the paper, use the sands on the paper to make the “beach”, use green paper to cut out the grass and stick some sea shells on the beach. There isn’t fine and nice cutting craft. But children love such kind of pictures very much and they won’t look down at those pictures at all. And their parents also treasure their pictures a lot.

German people have another tradition that children will inherit old toys from their parents. The situation is the same with the rich families. Many families will bring their children to the second-hand market to buy toys.

Sometimes, the rich families will hold some auditions to sell their old toys. Many adults also are parts of buyers of those toys.

Some toys which have been inherited from one generation to another generation are broken-out, but people can find the proper fitting in the second-hand market. After the repair of the toy, they can find the toy as good as the new one.

In many times, it is common that people find an old toy which traces back many generations. Even some hand-made crafts could be preserved for many years and become a kind of legacy for the family. Some families even spare a room out for those old toys preservation.

Such a good tradition has become a kind of typical culture in Germany, which is also a world-widely name card and is prized by many other countries. Why not other countries start to set up such a good tradition as Germany? With the development of the technology, a lot of good changes happen in the toy industry. The duration of toys is long.

For example, an inflatable jumper can be used for five years if people give it good maintenance. Even though when it can’t be inflated, the inflatable jumper can be cut apart and used in the other ways. The long maintenance isn’t for particular toy; if people can keep it as a good habit, it will save a lot of resources and suits to the socially environmental protection by now.
