Through our research, the Historical Folk Toys' products listed on this page have historical beginnings that can traced back to this time period or (according to their historical backgrounds) were popular (i.e., in widespread use) during this span of time. Every effort has been made to ensure historical accuracy based upon our research efforts to date. However, since historical discoveries continue to be made and archeological facts must sometimes be reevaluated, we Elves cannot guarantee absolute certainty about the origins of our products.

It is the intent of this guide to provide you, our customer, with a useful tool whereby you can decide which of our items for resale would be historically appropriate for your store. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or if we Elves can be of any further assistance to you. Thank you.
