Caixa Cultural has an exhibition called Brinquedos à Mão, a collection of 900 handmade toys from northeastern and rural Brazil. Although I don’t have the same connection or sense of nostalgia as possibly other people at the exhibit, I still enjoy seeing how culture is manifested through traditional toys. Which one’s your favorite?
The floral material is a traditional Brazilian cloth called chita.
It’s hard to see, but the doll on the right is playing the triangle.
Bumba Meu Boi
Alright, so not all of them are traditional. The two on the right are called cangaçeiros.
I wish i had this parque de diversão as a kid!
“So this is life…”
