    From the hillside forests of Switzerland to your child’s toy box, these traditional wooden toys continue to be a hit with kids today. Classic wooden tops, yo-yos, planes and trains are painted red and feature the white Swiss cross. Cows with bells and St. Bernards on wheels are classic Swiss figures that are constructed to the highest of standards. These adorable toys, made from local beech, maple, lime, and birch trees, are wonderful gifts for children, classic toy collectors, or anyone who appreciates high-quality craftsmanship. Wooden toys and many other handicrafts can be found at Zurich’s most popular “Made in Switzerland” shop, Schweizer Heimatwerk. The centrally located store is located on the river’s edge, at Uraniastrasse 1, and houses locally-made traditional and contemporary handicrafts and artworks. The helpful English-speaking staff are there to assist you Monday-Friday, 9 am to 8 pm, and Saturdays from 9 am to m. Wooden toys range in price from 8 francs, for a top, to 74 francs for a train set.
