Restore Your Childhood: Recycled Toy Sculptures

If you were wondering what to do with all your old toys why not use them to create art. This is what Robert Bradford did when he came across a box of his children’s old toys. Rather than discarding the collection of tiny plastic figures he used them to assemble colourful sculptures.

Most of his sculptures are of dogs, but he has also sculpted rhinos, ostriches, camels and fairies.
