Let's make our children laugh
In Taşeli region walnuts were grown a lot before. In the 1970s, it was also celebrated as the Walnut Festival in Ermenek. Just as we ate walnuts at that time, we also made our toys ourselves.
Two walnuts two bars, one large and one small, 50 cm. thin rope would be the material of our toy. Over time, the walnuts were bought as lumber by merchants and cut down considerably. Nowadays, there has been a considerable increase in the number of walnuts in our Taşeli region, and non-native breeds have started to be grown as well as local walnuts.
