When I was small I was fascinated by dollies especially those which has eyes that could open and shut and the baby ones that could ‘drink milk’ from a bottle.  These days I think dolls are a lot more complicated, so it was quite a blast from the past to see these vintage style one.

The kewpiedoll is adorable as well. They were produced in Germany in the 1900’s and the hard plastic versions in 1949, based on a cartoon in the 1909 Ladies Homes Journal. I now know that the name Kewpie was from the Roman god of love Cupid, and that’s what I love about blogging.

Other toys included those plastic cars that we used our feet to navigate with. I think these days the cars are actually battery run?

We played with tiny animal toys as well and I found these geese quite pretty.

There were all kinds of huge vintage prams mounted on the ceiling. I recall having one of those vintage black prams. It looked a lot more comfortable and sturdy than what we have today. Although I wonder if they were very hard and heavy to push. I guess there was a lot more space then, and our parents didn’t have to navigate as much.

There was even a wooden high chair with a doll as a prop.

The owner also included other baby stuff and even photos for a blast from the past.
