Everyone liked to play with toys in childhood. It was a special atmosphere of happiness and fun. And everyone wanted to have a lot of different toys: the more the better. Unfortunately, now this is only a past dream. However, dreams are becoming real. For the fourth year in a row Moscow International Exhibition Art of Dolls opened in the Moscow Manege. There are not only beautiful dolls, but soft toys, toy trains, puppet houses, and materials for the hand-made design of dolls. In fact, there are about ten thousand items in exhibits made in 20 countries of the world.

You can see the art of dolls in all its diversity: from primitive rag dolls to sophisticated ball-jointed dolls. Nobody can, for example, be indifferent to the Italian collection. These beautiful dolls look like living girls who are going along a sandy beach and a sea breeze is playing with their long hair. Another project of unusual dolls is “Art-Mechanics” by Victor Grigoriev – moving mechanical dolls of the future with protruding cogwheels.

Surely, Teddy bears are liked by all. But there was something in the exhibition I have never seen. It is a toy made of felt. The creator of this collection – Irina Andreeva – said about her passion: “I don’t know exactly why I’ve chosen this material for my creation. Probably, the felt conquered me with its texture, color, and smell. The felt is pliable and uncertain at the same time. You never know what will happen as a result. Therefore the result often is different from the outline”. The wonderful exposition is united by memories of Irina’s childhood spent partly in a village. So, her works are so warm and nice.

The dolls exhibition of 2011 acquainted its visitors with new developments in doll art. People who discovered this fabulous world for the first time had the great chance to take part in numerous master-classes of Russian and foreign doll’s designers on the creation of unusual toys.
