If someone were to take my childhood and put it on display it would end up looking something like Lucas Mongiello’s latest series titled 20/20.
Seven images of plastic toys stacked up in glass containers bring back memories of my youth, when playing (and displaying) my Troll collection was all in a days work. But times have changed, and while I like to think that my childhood toys were way better than the toys of today, I know that a rainbow haired Troll is no match to a child raised on a diet of Xbox.

So while these images bring back found memories of hours spent playing, they also remind me how the toys of my generation are like relics at a museum. (Insert feeling old right here)
