My favorite toys when I was a kid were the Fisher Price Little People.  I found some of the vintage wood people, and a few animals and cars at a flea market over the weekend, including this little wooden orange boy. Even when I was a kid, I liked the wooden people better than the plastic ones.

It's always fun for me to try to give a sense of movement and life to paintings of inanimate objects. The little orange boy says rather indignantly, "Who you calling inanimate??" (I love my imaginary world...)
