How wonderful are these retro robot toys? Wandered round the Christmas market in Princes Street Gardens this evening after work - dark winter night and here are all these wee wooden stalls, scent of hot gluwhein and spiced, hot cider in the air, steam rising from food stalls, the craft stalls all lit up, ice rink nearby, big wheel, carousel, busy crowds, lovely splash of life and noise and aroma against the surrounding winter night.

I love the traditional toy stalls - carved, painted wooden toys, wind-up clockwork toys, old tin-type toys like these gloriously 50s robots, I love looking at a whole stall full of these brightly coloured, wonderful toys and for a moment feeling as if I was five years old again and that simple pleasure a new toy and your own imagination promised...

You sum up the general feel of the market really well.

I was over there on Monday and was so close to taking a shot of the robot selection too!

[] they are hard to resist snapping, aren't they? Just so colourful and such great shapes.
