Question string for old-fashioned wooden toys

I'm making some old-fashioned toys requiring both wood and string--a climbing bear, a buzz saw, a figure who flips over a rope when you squeeze the sticks holding either end of the rope (I don't know the usual name for this one). The older books just say to use 'string'. Do any of you make toys like this? If so, what kinds of string have you found sturdy enough to use?
Any thoughts appreciated.

Hi JoM
Being a grandfather making toys for the grand children I am always looking for new ideas and therefore I am very much interested in the old-fashioned toys you are making - would it be possible to share some of the plans with us?
