Did you buy something?
It is wonderful the things they can do with the cans!

@Melanie: no I did not, I dream of going to Africa for that! regards D
Sad to see the social divide in this world even have manifested itself into children's toys. African toys made of recycled cans and things that Americans and rest of wealthy Europeans call garbage. Sad indeed.
Thanks for sharing

@Amir: there is truth in what you are saying, I always admire the ingenuity of people to make the most of life even with garbage! regards D
This reminds me of going to exhibitions at the art gallery here in Sydney, when you come out of the exhibition and enter the shop -- which is I guess what you did here. A lovely collection of toys that you've captured. I presume from the EXIF information, that this is a lens with a maximum aperture of f3.5, so you've done well under the circumstances in the low light.

@Andrew Gould: I am just the owner of a small compact Olympus μ 770 SW, it is a magic little thing! regards D
Dazzling collection of collectors' items!! MIraculous what creative people can do with throw-away things! There's also a sad side involved, let's all do our best to diminish the gap between poor and rich. I saw a documentary about manufacturing japanese rice crackers in China. The Japanese have them made in China where young women operate on the conveyor belt at four euros a day! That's far less than a European or American earns per hour, Dutch lawyers charge 400-600 euros per hour which is 3-5 months payment for such a Chinese woman. Let's face it.

@Illuci: one way is to stop buying chineese, can it be done? hard decission! I agree with you on the rest.
