My family pre-war toy and retro toys inspired by movie "Inventions of Hugo" | MOVIE INTERIORS



 In the last post I wrote about stunning scenography of "Inventions of Hugo". In the movie I also spotted colorful vintage toysstu. Wooden, metal, in bold colors. No "made in china" tacky stuff. The pre-war toys were beautiful and often with very interesting mechanisms!

Look at this stunning metal Climbing Monkey by Lehmann company my sister got from my grandmother! It comes from 1920s, my grandma used to play with it as a child. The toy is still in a great condition.

If you have any toys that survived several generations share the information (and picture? :) ) in a comment!

Some would say that contemporary toys are not the same...and they would be right ;) but it's still possible to find pretty and fun toys. Look what I found:
