photo hunt — "miniature"

Don't know if it's still there, but for many years there was a little shop in
Paris's Palais Royal that sold nothing but toy soldiers.  These were just
a few of the thousands they had in their collection.

[See more miniatures here, at tnchick's PhotoHunt meme.]


  1. What a great shot. It zeroes in on the subject but gives the impression of a great army too. Nice miniatures.

  2. cool miniature! Have a wonderful Saturday.

  3. what intricate little soldiers :) Great find!

    Enjoy your weekend.

  4. These are cute.... I bet it's more big boys who buy these than little ones.

  5. I actually thought at first that it was an army -- beautiful miniatures and colors, Alexa. I will look for this store in Paris on my next visit.

  6. Neat! I quite like teensy things, Alexa, as you well know. And I watched Night at the Museum on TV just last night {which includes some scenes with miniature soldiers} so your photo made me smile.
