My Dad has given me great insight into why these toys are so special. As time rolls on, I dip deeper into my understanding of collecting. Dad’s wealth of knowledge, is something to admire, mightily. His love for these items, originating from a specific range/period in history, is indeed what I would like to honor in the following series of Wedges/postings. Here is my Dad, David, with his collection of Character Soft Toy Dolls (February, 2K15) dating from the early 1920s (Felix the Cat) through to the 1960s (Magilla Gorilla). Not quite ‘Mouse Heaven‘, but still an Arcadia of Visual Pleasure!
