Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Teddy Bears, Dolls, Toys


Dolls, Teddies and Toys

You can imagine how delighted Naomi and I were to have a challenge involving dolls, bears and toys as we  collect them but not all my photos today are  of my own things. Every year I try to get to the Hobart Model Train Show and every year I take photos so I have quite a lot of photos of model trains. Everyone loves model trains don’t they? These photos are from last year. The gentleman in the uniform is Peter Fielding who lives near Naomi. I met him some years ago when we were often travelling on the same bus. Model trains are one of his hobbies and he always exhibits a railway based on military history, usually World War One. Last year he had “The Desert War”.

I love all the layouts but I am especially fond of the ones using Triang trains as I used to have a Triang train set as a child. I also rather like the scenery of the British and European model railways.

David and I were always very fond of the British TV series Doctor Who. The TARDIS was given to him by Naomi as were the little Dalek and 11th Doctor figure.

The Eleventh Doctor and an old enemy.

Here is a vintage monkey who belongs to me. His name is Roy. The Teddy Bear was made by me and the cute little picnic set was a gift from Naomi. The Cabbage Patch baby was in an odd lot of dolls I bought so I knitted him an outfit but he has now moved on.

Of course I was going to add some dolls, here are just a few of my collection.
