Happy World Origami Days! :-)

More origami ballooning fun as our Origami balloon fleet arrived from Albuquerque to Toy-ronto's dales & valleys just in time for the October fest of autumnal colours!

Had cast my planetary magic here as well origami magic with the cheerful ride of our origami hot air balloons! :-)

More of toy-some Toy-ronto fun is coming - stay tuned! / Bientot a l'ecran!

A note for origami enthusiasts: The diagrams of all these origami hot air balloons are published in our eBook ORILAND BALLOON RIDE
Happy folding! :-)

Ospedale delle bambole

This window full of heads, arms and legs of antique dolls can not attract the attention of those who walk through Via di Ripetta. The name of this charming shop is “Artistic Restoration Squatriti: dolls hospital.” If you walk through the door, time seems to have stopped here: toy soldiers, dolls and ancient puppets are here to welcome you. The Squatriti family has Neapolitan origins and transmit the art of restoration from generation to generation. In little more than 15 square meters the two owners take care of their little patients tirelessly, the dolls are made of wood or cardboard, often late nineteenth century, family heirlooms or collectibles whose buyers come from all over the world. Like any good doctor, when the little patient is ‘cured’ is returned to the owner with a notebook indicating diagnostic repairs incurred and advice on how to treat it.
