Toys on display are ordinary objects made of plastic, wood, metal, cloth in all sorts of ways. Toys go from ordinary to extraordinary when they are powered by a child’s imagination. Every person has a memory or anecdote of his or her favorite childhood toy, and a toy chest filled with treasured memories. As children, our imaginations are unlimited and our energy lasts for hours. Whether handmade or store-bought, it’s good to have toys that aren’t always on a computer screen.
I focused on finding interesting ways of photographing toys–fun objects, but batteries aren’t included. This fun photo game had me smiling. Toys are on display everywhere in toy shops, museums, store windows, and parks.
Cats and Dogs
Adults and children enjoy a visit to a toy store, a shop that guarantees smiles. I smiled as I looked over all the toys and games at a toy store brimming with excitement. The colorful dogs and wind up cat caught my camera lens.
Dolls and Carnival Games
Where is the world’s largest toy museum? The World’s Largest Toy Museum is in Branson, Missouri, a popular pilgrimage for fun. I wondered where it was. I snapped the pictures of historical toys from different eras and cultures at art and historical museums.
We may grow up and taller, but we don’t grow tired of playing with games and toys. Sometimes the only thing that changes is the price of the toys and games. As we grow up, they go up in price. If we play Hot Wheels and airplanes as children, then we restore vintage cars as adults. Or we fly model airplanes. The train set that thrilled us as children makes us seek out the adventure of train travel.
Maybe it’s why we still like to visit markets and shops to look at items on display and toys.
