Preserving Childhood Memories

…literally.

I ran across this on TYWKIWDBI, but the site he got it from doesn’t appear to be the originator and doesn’t credit a source. So I can’t tell you who made this but it’s really kind of neat.

A few of the smaller toys seem to be floating, so apparently the jars are filled with fluid of some kind. I don’t know if that would be a good idea for long-term storage since I assume they’d eventually start to degrade, although it certainly adds to the “laboratory specimen” ambience.

It probably wouldn’t be appropriate to display a child’s castoff toys this way unless you want to be hit with a large therapy bill, but if you’ve got a few toys from your own childhood that you can’t quite bear to part with this might be a fun way to showcase them.

    That’s totally disturbing, but quite amusing. I like it. :) As for the floating medium, perhaps some sort of thick gel or jelly type substance… I wonder if coating the sides of the jar with some kind of glue, like rubber cement, would give that cloudy sort of appearance.

    i wonder also if it is the stuff you can use to create faux water for fake flowers, but it is solid when it cures? some sort of resin… that would be brilliant and stop the stuffed animals from degrading…hmmm…
