Museum of Childhood - pt.2

Dolls and figurines were, as you'd expect, well represented at the Museum of Childhood. Here are some exhibits which caught our eye.

Below: Such surly faces! This pair looked like they were plotting something big.

Triple-faced baby, Museum of Childhood

Above: Triple-faced baby. Its clothing is presumably lost for good, but this doll would originally have lived in a large, hooded outfit. Once inside his hood, a twist of the nodule atop the doll's head would have revealed a different face.

Below: Hovering figurine collection. My favourite is the litte fellow with the guitar and pointy hat (left-hand side). They all remind me of characters from the N64 Legend of Zelda videogames. Note giant priest baby in background.

Paper dolls, Museum of Childhood

Above: Cute paper dolls. There's something of the Shirley Temple about them.

Below: Finally, I can't decide if this disembodied doll's head - lying in a display box in a nook of the museum - was supposed to be part of the exhibition or not.

I reckon those evil-browed twins have already carried out their plans - and the results are that picture at the bottom.
