Beautiful retro collection of The Russian Royal Children’s toys is exhibited in the Museum of Toys in Sergiev Posad, Moscow, Russia. From 1918 to 1931, permanent exhibitions were held the at the Alexander Palace in Tsarskoye Selo – “Children’s half”, “The Room of the younger princesses” or “Heir’s room.” After the 1931 the exposition was closed. The toys and things of the royal children were distributed to orphanages, asylums. And since then, the traces of the royal toys were officially lost. Those that didn’t disappear in orphanages, were accepted on the deposit of the Toy Museum in 1932.

Bear Alfonso. History of unique toys began in 1908, when at Christmas Prince George Mikhailovich Romanov gave to his four year old daughter Xenia (1903 – 1965) mohair teddy bear by company ‘Steiff’. The girl fell in love with a bear so much that did not part with it for a minute.
