Mexican Folk Art Toys

As you know, I’m super busy trying to get the shop fixed up and opened by the end of April. So, today I’m sending you a little photo spread of some folk art toys that are quintessentially Mexican…lacquered vehicles, circus rides, animals, carved ox carts…none of these are really “toys” in the sense of permitting a child to play with them but they are whimsical pieces, often taken from common images in the lives of Mexican artisans. Yes, you really do see oxcarts, horses, chickens, and animals playing instruments and of course, bright colors everywhere…
