Dolls and soft toys are strange and lend animation to a still life. When arranging  objects the difference in scale and the vividness of the colours you find in toys can be  used to create an atmosphere of light-heartedness but are very often also slightly  disturbing. This image has a  claustrophobic quality because large elements are placed  at the back and the front space is crowded with smaller objects.
