No matter what part of the world you examine, there will be children there. Those children will have hopes, dreams… and toys. Toy Stories is a book by photographer Gabriele Galimberti that studies children all over the world. She compares their toys, a seemingly simple gesture but it has more meaning than you could realize. Some play with LEGO bricks. Some play with dolls. Others play with toy guns. These children and their playthings are a microcosm of the culture that they live in. It’s shocking to see the differences throughout the world.
