Are Traditional Toys Longer Lasting Than Their Modern Rivals?

Traditional toys are still massively important in a child’s development, with wooden toys, play toys and the older generation of toys still a fundamental part of what children should be playing with.

Bishops Frome, UK, February 04, 2011 — In a modern world where toys need more batteries than you could ever imagine and everything has to go through a console and TV, parents continually struggle to balance children having modern toys that every child wants compared to having toys that are more traditional, longer lasting and give the child something different. Traditional toys are still massively important in a child’s development, with wooden toys, play toys and the older generation of toys still a fundamental part of what children should be playing with.

Traditional toys ( ) are said to last longer than their modern alternatives, mainly because you find they are often more durable and sturdy, which means that a child can normally play with the toy for hours and not have the parent worrying about them breaking it. If you compare a wooden car made of decent materials to an electronic one with weak plastic, you can quickly see that there is far more chance of the plastic car cracking and then breaking compared to the wooden version.

The older generation of toys were mainly produced in an age where money was tight and children did not have a wealth of choice of products to play with. This meant that these kind of toys ( ) tended to last a little longer because manufacturers knew that there was little choice at the time and little money to spend, which meant any toy the child did have, had to last a long time.

One of the main issues with any electrical item, be it a toy or otherwise, is that they will of course tend to break more often than something without electronics inside of it, mainly because whenever you introduce any kind of computer related items into a toy you have more things to worry about. The more complicated the toy, the higher the chance that it could suffer some sort of malfunction at any time and this could therefore decrease the length in terms of the life of the toy.

Although the more traditional toys are often a little more expensive than modern toys, ( ) this can be balanced by the fact that they often last much longer and are often not so mass produced, which means your child or the recipient of the toy is getting something original, quite unique and of distinct quality.

It is fair to say that when you look at traditional toys and modern toys, there are places in the market and in the hearts of children for both types of toy, with each offering something different for the child. But when it comes to lasting longer in terms of durability, traditional toys do tend to be stronger and therefore go the distance, whereas modern technology can often make people as unhappy as it can make them happy, especially when it goes wrong.

RealTime Publishing are delighted to announce the releases of an adventure memoir by British author, Alfred Pickup.

Limerick, Ireland, February 02, 2011 — RealTime Publishing Announces Fish & Ships, an exciting adventure memoir from British author, Alfred Pickup.

The webpage at was launched simultaneously with the book’s publication.

About the Book (Excerpts & Info):
After the fight, one of the physical training instructors came over and told me that I had to enter Collingrad’s boxing championships, due to my talented right hand (I had a good uppercut by all accounts). I had four fights and won them all by knockout in the first round, which meant I was now in the finals for middle weight. I was quite chuffed about all this; my class mates were all behind me. What I didn’t know at this time was a certain boxer called Paddy Graham was also in the final. Now, this guy was a Navy legend; he was southern area, ABA, and Northern Ireland amateur champion.

The night of the final arrived, I was in my corner dressed in a white Navy t-shirt, a pair of Navy issue sports shorts down to my knees, and a pair of plimsolls, when in came Paddy, dressed in silk shorts, a t-shirt covered in boxing honours, and proper boxing boots. I’m thinking, why me, o lord. My sphincter muscle is tightening up, my mouth is drier than a camel’s arse, adrenaline is coursing through my veins, the fight or flee mode is kicking in; my loyal mates are giving me a hundred to one chance. Seconds out, round one, Paddy comes out of his corner, blowing air through his nostrils like some insane bull. I move forward, I see a chance, there’s a gap between his gloves… (Chapter 2)

Fish and Ships by author Alfred Pickup takes readers behind the scenes and onboard the Royal Navy from the early 1960’s to mid 1980’s.
Travelling the world’s oceans meant facing powerful storms, on board fires, mechanical breakdowns, the threat of war, and shore leaves where young matelots with money in their pockets and adventure on their minds could get into all sorts of alcohol-infused shenanigans in local establishments.
Fish and Ships follows a twenty-five year career in the RN that would see Pickup rise to the rank of Chief Petty Officer and retire from service in his early forties to life as the owner of a fish and chips restaurant.

Fish & Ships offers readers a rare and honest glimpse into the adventure, excitement, and unique challenges of a career in the Royal Navy.
