...we visited Museum of Childhood. It's a great place to take your kids to but I must admit that the collection of dolls is a bit overwhelming. All dolls are gathered in large groups and displayed behind the glass: so beautiful in their dresses, so original, so very different from today's dolls but at the same time I found them a bit... creepy? Their faces... disturbing. None of them smile.
And this doll was the one I admired the longest. The power of imagination. It belonged to a poor child in the beginning of 20th century and was made from a shoe. It kind of makes you wonder. How little children had in the past and how much they have now and sometimes they still want more.
We also went to see the Christmas market that is now open in the city centre. Edinburgh is getting ready for the festive season and it does look magical.
Happy December Everyone!
