Miniature funnies

My daughter is a Sylvanian Families devotee- I think they are called Calico Critters in USA.  She loves to arrange little tableaus of her favourite scenes


Cute!  (It's dark on her shelf space- hard to get a good pic).  She subscribes to the members club and each quarter gets a mag with a story and lots of tableau pics- her dream job is to be the person styling these photots.  The most recent has a museum theme.  The Sylvanian's visit a museum which is a composite of Tate Modern, The British Museum and many others.  The works of pastiche works of art really made me giggle.  Carl Andre's The Bricks 

The Terracotta Army

and the one that got me, Tracy Emin's My Bed


  1. Oh wow, I love that!

  2. It's so cute.... My husband just bought my girl a set of Sylvanian toys, but not as eleborate as your daughter's.

  3. wow! what a good art education from a toy! i love your daughters composition - she should send a pic to the magazine.
    i had sylvanian families as a kid too, and still have them somewhere i loved them too much to get rid of them... especially the little ducks who lived in the tree house!
