Toy Theaters

At the end of May I visited the 8th International Toy Theater Festival at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn. It was magical, a visual delight. I attended the exhibit portion of the festival; there are also scheduled performances at the toy theaters, which sell out quickly, but I hope to make at least one next year.

As you can see from the photos, there were vintage Pellerin theaters on display as well as new ones; I especially like the dollar bill construction! Remember to click on each picture to enlarge.

Check out for more information about the festival and other toy theater events.

And who knows: maybe a paper doll collector out there has a toy theater in his or her own collection to enter in the convention competition (paper toy category).
