A mix of mainly Barton and Dol-Toi furniture. Kleeware see-saw, Spot-On pram, Lundby chalkboard, Sylvanian Families toy piano and the little printed table, front left, is Blue Box.The gnome figures were inspired by those of elves used to ornament Butlin's camps, mostly outside but seen in at least one nursery (at Barry Island) in archive photos. The details for the mini dolls house are under its own photo, next. The two tiny wooden shoes, on the Barton sideboard, at the right, are "The Old Woman who Lived in a Shoe" houses from In Some Small Way. They are standing on black plastic cases which contain tiny figures of the Old Woman and her children, one set for each Shoe. The sideboard holds small toys, boxed games and the First Aid box. Since this picture was taken, I've stolen the Blue Box pink dropside cot to use in another project. The cat clock on the back wall was a gift. I know it came from the USA but I don't know the maker. Apart from this clock, everything was bought on eBay.

I'm itching to make a 1/16th scale kiddies painting signed Zoe H (age -2) to be hung on the wall!

Nice Dol-toi bookcase with books, this will look lovely when the walls are decorated.

That's the story corner - a comfy chair for the nursery nurse and room for a semi-circle of toddlers to sit round it. There's plenty of stories to chose from in that bookcase. If the little ones sit facing forwards, they can be led in a sing-song, accompanied on the piano. Butlin's Filey Nursery had a painted piano, which could have been this one, for very many years.
