Abstract

The re-production of traditional toys at the present day both by industrial and traditional methods shows divergent design approaches. The materials used by traditional methods such as wood, clay, textile are substituted by plastics in industrial production. Apart from this, at the present day traditional toys are seen in the market as souvenirs and decorative items. In addition to the traditional and industrial interpretations, these toys are produced by informal sector with recycled materials and meet their customers on street peddles. The aim of this article is to investigate the design approaches in recent interpretations of traditional toys.
