I inherited a collection of lead toys from my father. He was very nostalgic about his childhood and I believe that he wanted to recapture some aspect of it, but I also believe that he recognized that there was a historical gravitas in the toys. It’s hard not to be aware of their weight when you pick them up. They don’t feel like other toys and they look more like little sculptures than playthings. These miniature toys have been tossed around in their lives and to some degree their world weariness is a testament to their role as protectors.
