Postcard from Tartu Toy Museum with Ded Moroz and Snegurotchka (Santa and Snowmaiden - in Russia they usually travel together to give gifts to children)
I love the sour faces of the toys - not very happy or just very dedicated, no time for smiles when so many children are waiting for their gifts!
The card tells these toys were produced in 1960-ies

New Year is srs bsns.

About:

All things Soviet (1922—1991): photography, objects, songs, movies, persons.

I'll collect Soviet memorabilia here that I like and that gives that special nostalgic feeling for the "good old times". I'm Russian and I was born in the USSR, so some of it carries a special meaning for me, they are things I remember, bits of my childhood. Earlier eras also fascinate me big time. I want to capture daily life of ordinary people in the big country rather than its political and military history. Life that is still remembered and missed by many.
