Gabriele Galimberti's amazing photography project Toy Stories is an adorable photo series that is incredibly informative. Through his traveling around the world, the artist has come to notice to the cultural differences between children and parenting styles.

The aspect of the project that amazed me is the acute demonstration of these children's interest and the way their minds work. For instance, while many kids focus on a single area such as transit, planes or motorcycles, there are some whose interest are scattered but are still meaningful as whole.

Within the making of this project, the artists came to recognize some distinct personal differences in cultures. For instance, children in wealthier countries were more wary of sharing their toys and that parents in South America were more laid back about their kids' interactions than parents in other parts of the world.
