Bogorodskaya toys are known since the 17th century. According to a legend the first toy was made in a poor peasant family in a small village of Bogorodskoe (close to Sergiev Posad). A mother was trying to entertain her kids. She made a doll from a fabric, but her kids tore it. She made a new one out of straw but it soon fell apart. Finally she carved a wooden toy for them. This doll was durable and the kids played with it for a long time. Their father later took it to a fair and sold it. The merchant who bought it found it very amusing and ordered quite a lot of them. Since then, they say most of the villagers of Bogorodskoe are engaged in "toy" craft. The toys are great at developing fine motor skills of the little children. A child will need to wiggle the toy gently to make the chicken peck seeds or a hare to play drums.
