Sunday morning. Breakfast at Joan’s. A cadre of colorful windup toys in her kitchen… I asked if I could photograph them. I can’t remember a specific windup toy I had as a child but these all felt familiar and provided a relaxing and fun time as she wound them up and they executed their motion while I tried to photograph them.
Guess they are making a big comeback. I am going to get some for
me the grandkids so I they can play with these adorable windup toys.
Yeah. It’a all fun and games until Dad steps on one on his way to getting a late night snack.
so joans is a great place to unwind
so cute. Off to Chicago on Friday and FL. on Monday. Missed you at the Veterans Dinner. Love, Judy
Those are great pictures. They do bring back memories to a simpler time. Boy, don’t I sound old.
These were always a big hit @ our house. Did not know they were making a comeback.
Kongo really likes that little Monkey wind up.
Lovely and so colourful. I used to have a few wind-ups as a kid. I didn’t know they mad anything without batteries these days. 🙂 I must have a look for a couple for my little grandson.
Wonderful photography!!! Amazing!
My kids always break wind-up toys…
The drumming bear is a classic. As a kid, we had little ‘monster’ type wind-ups that ran all over the place. I still remember the ‘whirring’ sound they made…
They are making a comeback, I think.
