    The Slavic children should have their own place on Slavorum; they can become more connected with their own culture, artists and values by showing them the places and the toys that were created by the beautiful minds of their countrymen specialy for them…things that will rise their creativity.

    The puppets of Anna Balash:

    "The strange and beautiful world of Anna Balash, a graduate of the Belarusian State Arts and Theatre Institute and daughter of a famous film critic, revolves around a range of bizarre, doll-like puppet figures. Anna’s background is in costume design, a skill she’s managed to successfully miniaturise and export around the world. Each doll takes several months to make and is fashioned from a porcelain head and material gathered from around the world. The dolls have their own personalities (and names), hide all manner of tricks and qualities about their person, and are available for commission."

    How many children access the forum, though?  I'd love to see something like that if there was actually a demand or possible demand for it.

    Great information on these dolls, too. I'm not a big doll person but these are beautiful.

    Se-Ma-For Museum of Fairytale in Łodz.

    Se-Ma-For Museum of Fairytale is a special place on a cultural map of Lodz. Main aim of this place is to promote art of animation as a sphere of endless possibilities. Museum, established in November 2008, promotes also Se-Ma-For Film Studio's productions. The idea of establishing Museum came with a need of making  puppets and decorations created in Se-Ma-For accessible for the public. In connection with the 60th anniversary of Polish animation celebrated in 2008, exhibition presenting Se-Ma-For Film Studio achievements, entitled „Road to Oscar” was organized. As the exhibition became very popular, Se-Ma-For Film Foundation decided to turn it into a permanent exhibition. Se-Ma-For Museum of Fairytale is a private museum as well as part of Se-Ma-For Film Foundation educational activity.  From the very beginning of its existence, Museum works on varying the exhibition, adding new decorations and puppets from the latest productions of Se-Ma-For, such us “Danny Boy” released on January 2010. Museum also organizes various events, introducing to the public world of animation as well as Se-Ma-For Studio history and achievements.One of Museum activities aiming to activate young animation enthusiasts was a workshop entitled “Animation of Vacation”. As a result, DVD with films made during that workshop was released. Museum is also a place, where characters from Se-Ma-For series for children are promoted: Teddy Floppy-Ears or Penguin Pik-Pok are children's favourites. On June 2010, on Piotrkowska Street, Museum organised an event “Teddy Floppy-Ears conquers New Zeland”. It was focused on promotion of the character from Se-Ma-For series for children, whose image grace one dollar New Zeland coin released on Niue Island on Pacific Ocean.

    Since March 2010 Museum's offer has been enriched with some educational activities – Cinema lessons and workshops. Artistic lessons are inspired by Se-Ma-For Studio films and targeted on children and youth. Workshops are aimed on familiarizing participants with stop-motion animation techniques, puppet creation and operation, as well as sensitize young visitors to a difficulties and emotions animators have to face in their everyday work. The most popular is a workshop entitled “My own puppet”.

    Se-Ma-For Museum of Fairytale units the beginnings of Se-Ma-For Film Studio, reminding about it's successes and bringing back the splendour. At the same time it meets contemporary work of the Studio and presents new productions, which is a great continuation of Se-Ma-For's roots.

    Here is the history of Se-Ma-For Film Studio's productions: http://www.se-ma-for.com/en/semafor/semafor-history

    Here you can check the movies presented by Se-Ma-For: http://www.se-ma-for.com/en/films

    Inside of the museum you can take a look at some puppets used in animations and you can spend as long time as you want watching animations.

    I'm sure that there are no children reading Slavorum. But their parents or even the users of this forum who will have in future children may find some useful informations. Slavicmuse, you want children. Wouldn't you like to know what are the alternatives to Barbie dolls :)?

    True… that's part of the reason I suggested a women's section in the complaints and suggestion section. A figured a women's section could cover various topics that might not be interesting to the menfolk.

    I don't mind looking at dolls and toys. I played dolls with my older sister when I was a child.  ;D
    Also, I watched on television once a male crafstman who was making beautiful dolls.
    IMHO the topic does not belong to 'women's section' only. It should be for everyone. Besides not every female visiting the forum will have access to the women's section.

    Very true. I had more in mind more personal topics concerning parenting, womanly issues and such for the women's section. :)

    As soon as we get our Female section, we will move this thread there.

    Thank you Al locului for this thread, it's useful for us as future mothers  :)  Our children should be raised in a Slavic spirit, although I'm aware of a fact that it may be difficult because the propagation of degenerated culture from the West is everywhere and is strong. Honor to every parent who protects his child against it.

    I'm glad you find it useful. I know that is hard to fight with the culture from West, but I think that this is what Slavorum is about :).

    I found this beautiful article about Slavic toys:

    " Slavic folk toys

    While doing me research in the history of costume, I stumbled over the material that describes the history of Slavic folk toys.
    It was no news for me that originally dolls had ceremonial meaning and served as defence from evil forces.
    Since ancient times rag dolls have been traditional toys for many peoples. Adults would encourage their kids to play with dolls, as it taught them to run the household duties; and, actually, for kids it was a virtual reality of a Home and Family.
    Looks like young girls learned handcrafts like sewing, weaving and embroidery " thanks to" their dolls. They would dress their dolls up, then show them to older women and after receiving the " matriarchs" approval, they would set to making their own dowry.
    Dolls were considered not just as toj, but also as a symbol of increase and reproduction of their seed and the key to family happiness.
    My attention was drawn to the fact that the line between the ceremonial dolls and the toy dolls is very blurry and it is not clear which of them came first – the ceremonial or the toy dolls.
    Anyway, I decided to take my chances and make a Russian folk doll – the kind our grannies would have played with.
    The very first doll predecessors were "faceless". The face would remain blank – unpainted.
    In villages this fact was explained as simply inability to beautifully paint the face, and moreover, that there was a deficit of appropriate paint. But in reality its meaning runs much deeper – a " faceless" doll was considered to be a lifeless object,inaccessible to evil forces to inhabit its body or soul, and therefore safe for the child to play with. It was assumed that the doll had bring its little master/ mistress prosperity, health and happines…
    This theme is very profound and insightful and requires more time than you and me got at hand now.
    … and there she is – my pretty little doll, whom I created unred the inspiration of the stories and echoes from the past."

    Whoa.. That's actually pretty deep in meaning. I mean, I understand that our ancestors did everything for a reason. Nothing was just for nothing. But all of that just kind of blew my mind. I love it! Thank you! 

    And you are both right.. it's up to us future mothers to instill our traditions in our children so that they too understand their roots as well as our traditions never die. So things like this are amazing!

    You are welcome :). In Romania is the same with ols toys. I saw in Etnographical museum such pupetts are they were all preparing the children for a better understanding of life, but in a funny way. The pupetts should have a reason. For example, the ones above would stimulate children's creativity :).
