Abstract. The article examines the geography of Old Russian crafts for the manufacture of toys, such as Kargopol, Filimonov, Dymkovsky, Abashevsky, Skopinsky toys and biryulki. Each toy reflects the peculiarities of the territory, nature and traditions of local residents. The Kargopol toy reflects the life and culture of northern Russia, with its peasant images and bright colors. Filimonov’s toy, associated with a soldier’s village, depicts soldiers and animals. The Dymkovsky toy is famous for its complexity and small details, as well as its unique coloring. The Abashevsky toy is a whistle in the form of animals that can take fabulous images. The Skopin toy depicts animals and fabulous creatures, and biryulki act as wooden toys that were used in the game. Each of these toys has its own uniqueness. They are not only decorative objects, but also a source of information about the local history and culture of their people. Folk decorative and applied art is the result of the creativity of craftsmen, and today their products have become an integral part of life. Therefore, it is important to introduce students to the creations of mankind at school. The mention of folk crafts in the study of cultural and historical features of the peoples of Russia in grades 8-9 helps to learn more about ethnic creativity. Studying the geography of folk crafts also allows you to show the unique skills of the peoples of Russia and create an ethnographic portrait of the country. This can be done not only in geography lessons, but also through multilateral interdisciplinary connections, which will allow students to develop and learn the unique crafts of our country.
