The Gabriele Galimberti Toy Stories project captures children from all over the world with their most prized possessions. The heat-warming photographs show children from poorer areas like Malawi to children in Italy and India with lavish bedrooms and endless toys at their disposal.

The photographer spent 18 months traveling the world and documenting young girls and boys in their cutely decorated bedrooms or living rooms surrounded by their favorite toys. The anthropological photographer says he found a lot of similarities in the children featured in this series, even though they are from such drastically different backgrounds. "At their age, they are pretty all much the same; they just want to play" said the photographer of his subjects on his site.

The images present a charming insight into the lives of children around the globe. Stats for Favorite Toy Portraits Trending: Older & Mild
