Childhood toys in the adult world

JulienMauve-BackToChildhood-3.jpg

Throwing away the toys of your youth is one of the toughest moments you're likely to encounter in life.

Photographer Julien Mauve knows this pain and has created a set of inspired images that imagine how our toys would look when transported to the adult world.

The results easily appeal to our nostalgic side and have us heading straight to eBay to buy back all those toys we threw away. If anyone happens to own figures of both He-Man and Battle Cat then do let us know. Urgently.
