Staff Reviews

This book is delightful and thought provoking.  What toys would have been in my picture when I was a kid?  Are the adults that these kids will become somehow pictured here as well?  What do our toys say about us?  Make sure to take note of the author photo which shows him with his "toys".


— From Toy Stories


For over a year, the photographer and journal­ist Gabriele Galimberti visited more than 50 countries and created colorful images of boys and girls in their homes and neighborhoods with their most prized possessions: their toys. From Texas to India, Malawi to China, Iceland, Morocco, and Fiji, Galimberti recorded the spontaneous and natural joy that unites kids despite their diverse backgrounds. Whether the child owns a veritable fleet of miniature cars or a single stuffed monkey, the pride that Galimberti captures is moving, funny, and thought provoking.
