What do your favourite toys reveal about you? Toy Stories is a series of children’s portraits by Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti which was displayed at the Museum in 2014. The 21 photographs explore the role and function of toys in the lives of children around the globe, reflect the impact of the children’s backgrounds and families on their choice of toys and highlight the universality of play.
