Medvednica’s forests are rich with timber so fretwork and other fine wood processing skills were developed in some settlements under Sljeme. Inhabitants of Vidovec were particularly famous for it. It was said that there were “all types of masters” amongst them. Inspired primarily by the things that surrounded them, they made children’s toys as minimized copies of everyday objects. Small trolleys, tables, chairs, baskets, cradles, colourful houses etc. would come out of their workshops. In the late 19th century the toys became more complicated and in early 20th century an organized production of toys was set up in Vidovec as an additional source of income within the first Croatian village association for production and sale of children’s toys. The association improved the production of toys and influenced their production all over Hrvatsko zagorje. It stopped functioning in 1956. That caused the demise of organized production of toys in Vidovec, but some masters continued to make toys for their children and grandchildren. Their mastery was confirmed by the UNESCO which protected the art of making traditional wooden children’s toys as an intangible cultural phenomenon of Croatia. The colourful traditional wooden toys can still be bought at village fairs on both sides of Medvednica.
