Soviet New Year's Toys Exhibition Opens in Kolomenskoe Estate

New Year's Fairy Tale has taken place in the wooden Palace of Tsar Alexey Mikhaylovich in Kolomenskoe memorial estate.

The exhibition presents the New Year's attributes of the Soviet epoch. All the exhibits have been brought together from private collections. In Moscow there are not so many collectors of fir-tree toys. It was not easy to find and get these fragile exhibits. 

      These guests from the past will touch anyone. They come from the 1930s-50s. The small works of art are all handmade. The most ancient of them are made of papier-mache, bugles, cotton wool or cardboard. Each toy has not only a subtle face portrayal, but also a personal expression.

      Apart from toys at the exhibition there are also carnival costumes, masks and New Year's cards! There is also an interactive fir-tree, which can be decorated by anyone, though following the European tradition, not at all with toys, but with drawings, notes or wishes. In the street by the wooden palace housing the exhibition, there is one more option of a modern fir-tree.
