My ode to the Russian toy that embraces pear shaped women of all sizes.
This babushka lives in the UK.
This one is having a cocktail before going swimming in the 1940s.
This one is a kinky Alaskan tourist.
A mini baker babushka.
Lastly the intellectual babushka refuses to be judged for her appearance.
I've always been fascinated by these toys since I was a child. Conceptually they're simple, yet each individual piece is unique in size and decor. For a while I was obsessed with finding the smallest babushka; I really enjoy the contrast from the smallest to the largest figure. Babushkas even make brilliant product ideas. The design possibilities for these are endless; so much so that I will add designing my own babushka to my bucket list.
What's your favorite toy?
