Toys, Tots, Travels.

Thursday, March 14, 2013

Many thanks to Megan (who has this beautiful essay featured on The Common this week), for bringing photographer Gabriele Galimberti's Toy Stories series to my attention. In it, children from around the world show off their most cherished toys - says Gabriele, "they [all] just want to play."


See the full series at Gabriele Galimberti's website, here. Have a lovely Thursday!

I saw something about this on Yahoo! yesterday but didn't click the link. Glad you shared it though. How interesting.

This totally makes me smile. I would've had all my dress-up clothes in a pile next to me.

A friend was recently telling me how she's going on a date with a super hot guy, and she's really nervous. I told her to picture him at age 5, with a superman cape on. Doesn't that instantly make someone less intimidating? When you can picture that every adult was once a kid that played make-believe and race cars and legos?

Have a great day Shoko!

I think we might have ESP or something. I just wrote about a collection of toys I keep on visiting in Brooklyn. This is far more cheerful, though. And I am loving the other photo series on Galimberti's website, too.

Also, thank you for sharing Megan's essay. It is so thoughtful and beautiful. I've read it once now, but feel a need to go back and read it again more slowly. Definitely bookmarking The Common for future reading!

Rose, that's brilliant!

Kathy, isn't it beautiful? Her work is always thoughtful and emotional - I'll post more of it in the future! :)

Oh wow this is so cool!! How neat to see what kids find most precious!

Mine would have included all my dolls.

This is so beautiful. It reminds me of the series of children from around the world in their bedrooms - I've forgotten the artist behind that but it was gorgeous too.

Now I'm reminiscing about all of my favourite toys - I might have to get them back out of the attic!
