Looking for classic toys
For a while, I've been wanting some toys to photograph. I want some classic toys like they did it 100 years ago, made of wood or metal, not plastic. And with nice colors, not just bright colors. (The clashing neon colors on modern toys make me puke.)
And what makes it really difficult is that I'm looking for things that are visually arresting. Things I consider beautiful. And complex is good. I know they exist, I have seen them, but they are so durn rare.
I've tried in toy stores, and I've searched on eBay, but don't fin' nottin'!
Anybody know a source, either for actual old toys, or somebody making fine toys today? (Maybe for collectors instead of children.)
Toys that move might be especially interesting.
