It's good to keep in mind with toy design that not all toys are designed for all ages. Use your best judgement when building toys for all age groups. If a toy is designed to be played with by every age of child it will be of no interest to any age of child. Older children are intrigued by detail. The youngest like to  chew. 2 to 4 year olds like to throw and ram.

We have a toy museum here in the city that has toys for all ages on display that are hundreds of years old. Many are very delicate, many are very rugged. All are well preserved because of the love for the toy itself even though it wasn't designed to be a projectile or battering ram.

Thanks John for sharing.

Will keep that in mind.

Would love to see the toy museum.  Maybe next year we can come there to see the museum, when our Grandson graduates from High School in Ill.

That would be great Ken. Hopefully we could go together. They are starting a complete remodel of the museuum right now and it is to be open again in 2015 as the National Toys and Miniatures Museum. It is a wonderful collection.
