Children Around The World and Their Favorite Things

Photographer Gabriele Galimberti traveled for three years and visited dozens of countries to capture young kids in their homes and neighborhoods surrounded by what they play with each and every day.

These fascinating portraits featured in the book “Toy Story”,  will make you think more than just about your own childhood but about the different set of circumstances each child is surrounded with as he or she grows up. Enjoy!

    What would have been more interesting would have been to see rich black kids with excess and hispanic children with excess. There is this 2 dimensional view of people that is pervasive in the collective mind of the world. The richest man in the world on Forbes’ list is Mexican. Where are his kids? I want to see things I don’t expect. Shock me.

    Things don’t make u happy. Children are incredibly imaginative and will find anything that is available to amuse them. We are the ones who teach them that things makes you important.

    Yes Christine S. E. Hollant I see your point but at the same time that is not the norm. And I guess the photographer wanted to show the norm; what happens usually instead of what happens sometimes. But I do see your point.

    But we see the “norm” all of the time. Help us see the things that we normally don’t. THAT is what makes “art” so interesting.
