Toys for collecting

All art that surrounds us today once had a practical purpose. The most skilful drawings were originally just cave paintings reflecting people’s daily lives and existence and carrying information for future generations. And looking at today’s fashion shows and wardrobe diversity it’s hard to imagine that once clothing merely protected the body from injury or impaired heat exchange.

In the same way, toys have become part of art. Today, handmade soft toys are no longer just fun for children but works of art that have an aesthetic value. Not without reason such toys are called soft sculptures – the process of making them resembles the work of a sculptor with a stone. But instead of marble there is fabric, artificial fur and natural sheep’s wool.

A huge number of people around the world collect unique, unusual toys. There are many exhibitions, online shops or communities where people search for, sell and buy exclusive products. Many toy connoisseurs prefer to order items for their collections in person from artisans as such toys often carry an unusual idea. And in order to translate the idea into reality, one must have a high level of craftsmanship.

Some toys are already a full-fledged part of the culture. For example, the Teddy bear is one of the most popular toys in the world. It is impossible to count the number of variations of this toy, as many collectors do not disclose the number of pieces in their collection. Nevertheless, the Teddy bear has become a style base for other toys: rabbits, cats, dogs and so on. It’s generally accepted that the Teddy bear toy is now of enormous cultural importance. That said, it cannot be denied that a properly chosen toy can decorate almost any interior.

Indeed, exclusive handmade toys that often cost more than several thousand euros are not always suitable for children’s play. However, they are guaranteed to make a wonderful decoration for the home. There is a reason there are certain types of toys for the interior that are called: “interior doll” and “interior toy”. However, it is impossible to identify any specific features of such toys as interior toys have a wide variety of styles, materials and manufacturing methods. This can be realistic toy animals with a flexible frame as well as plush animals with a minimum of detail. Much depends on the style of the interior and the customer’s preferences.
