The history of Filimonov toys, according to some historians and archaeologists, began as early as 1000 years ago .
During archaeological excavations in the Tula region, one of the first, primitive clay toys of that period was found. They were small figures of birds, animals and people, which were a fun decoration for the whistle. Filimonov decoration appeared on toys as early as the beginning of the 19th century.
