Classic Toys- Anatex Rollercoaster

By Glinda

Anatex rollercoaster

My grandmother bought this very toy for my cousin, who is now 21 years old.  My son played with it lo these many years ago, and it is sitting on my living room floor at this very moment, in pristine condition, waiting for my daughter to play with it. Because even though she is fascinated, all she wants to do right now is gnaw on it, not necessarily play with it.

And that is what I love about quality toys, often as not made out of wood, or at least mostly made of wood.   They can last twenty years and then some.  They are often expensive, but I think a bit of extra money is worth it, especially if you plan on having more than one child.  Now, let’s see if this can last to perhaps a grandchild of mine?  Totally worth the sixty bucks.

    We LOVE wood toys. Paloma is definitely a fan of stuff that lights up and goes ding – which she gets plenty of at her friends’ houses – but it’s the basics that last and promote learning, IMO. We have secondhand wood toys that are basically new, and not a single wood toy has broken yet. I have high hopes for our collection!

    Oooo I had this toy as a child and I LOVED it. I hope my parents still have it hanging around for when I finally start having babies. I have great memories of my sisters and I “racing” the beads on this to see how fast we could make them move.
