A visit to the Museum Of Childhood in Edinburgh is always a treat. Toys, games and playthings spanning centuries and continents jostle for attention in its timeless galleries. Here are a selection of it’s most fascinating dolls and keepsakes from across the world. Some are perhaps spontaneously improvised, and others made by-make-do-and-mend parents unable to afford even the basics in life.
Now imagine cosying up under the Christmas tree to excitedly unwrap these beauties. The photos are posted without title or comment, let your imagination run wild….sleep tight!
