I had so much fun with this one! These toys are ones that I’ve had for 20, 30, or more years. Some my children played with, some were given to me at different points in time, but all are now there for the grandchildren. Please note the doll bed (or tiny portions of the bed that show). My grandfather made it for us granddaughters. Since I was the youngest granddaughter on that side of the family, the bed was passed no further once it reached me. Needless to say, it is a cherished family heirloom now. I hope you enjoy the photos! 🙂

[ Smiles ] I have noticed that you have a nice collection of classical toys; do take very good care of them.
Also, I have to let you know that your post brought back a lot of my pleasant memories.
Thank you Renard. They have been packed away for years (we have moved a lot!), but when we bought this place it was with the intent of staying put! So, I unpacked them all and was really pleased with how they had stood the test of time. And the grandkids are happy, too!
My favorite toys were home made of wood by father and soon learned to make my own ships, castles, swords…..
Homemade is always the best!
The blurry edges make then look even more fluffy and soft. Great shots Cecilia!
I’m glad you like the effect. I thought that giving the shots an antique finish with blurred edges would make it more nostalgic.
This is awesome! Thanks for sharing
Cecelia, you were wise to keep those childhood toys. Your arrangement of them for the photos is wonderful.
Thanks Barbara. So glad you like them. 🙂
I love seeing all your buddies! There’s such comfort in your photo. I had a similar doll bed made by a man who lived down the street. I don’t remember what happened to it.
I kept them through the years thinking that someday I would have grandchildren who would come to visit. Sure enough, when they do come they make a bee line to the toys! 🙂
Wonderful toys and your photography is awesome.
Wow, thanks NN. I am happy that you like the photos. 🙂
That is just precious! Thank you for showing us. ~Patricia
I’m glad you like it, Patricia. Thanks for stopping by.
Love it. Did Raggedy Ann get a nose job?
I think that at some point years ago, one of the kids attempted to give her a nose job. She’s never been the same since! Hahahaha… Thanks for stopping by, Nancy.
Great photos, Cecilia. The monochrome tint is perfect for the subject.
Thank you, Bud. I had fun processing these photos. I wanted a “nostalgic” feel . . . glad you agree with the monochrome approach! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
lovely! that’s how my family is, we save toys, my mom has some from over 40 years ago, gift from my dad, when they started dating 🙂
I am glad you like the photos. There is something special about things that are passed down from one generation to the next. When my grandchildren come to play, the I can almost visualize when my childern (their parents) played with the same toys. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
Great photos. You’ve obviously taken good care of these over the years. Makes me wonder what happened to my old favorites.
Thanks for stopping by, Paul! I’m amazed that I still have these toys. They have been through three kids, boxed for many moves, and now they been pulled out for the grandkids. I love it when things go from one generation to another. 🙂
