My father in law collects these little moving dioramas and they are mesmerizing - particularly for children. Collectible and often hard to find, he brings them out of their boxes once a year and sets them up in his living room. In a day and age when video screens and blinking lights pass as entertainment for children, I like the old fashioned simplicity of these guys. Check this one out and then surf to find the rest.
