Childhood friends. Childhood memories. Childhood lost.

Nostalgic and playful and sometimes dark, the toys take on a life of their own. There is a remembered sense of fun and play as well as childhood fears and recurring nightmares I had when I was growing up. The experiences represent a second look at childhood play and the humor, silliness and sometimes darkness that comes through when the toys are left to their own devices.
