It’s holiday time … one wants something positive! I am sharing Nadiya’s masterpieces 🙂
To keep her hands busy, she made them in prison, SIZO-3 (Novocherkassk). A puppet theater called “Cipollino-Maidan.” Nadiya made a lot of these toys while still in Moscow, for the children of people in Moscow who are still actively supporting her. I thank them also!
PS: The animated cartoon “Cipollino” is still very relevant today. Some quotes: “Our king doesn’t like honest people, so they’re kept in prison” or “In recent years, our state revenues have dropped. After we taxed the air, you cut down on your breathing! This is outrageous!”
Overall, you should find 37 minutes to spare and check out the cartoon. 😉
The Good will bury the Evil. 😉

Cipollino Puppet Theater
Before you and your kids play with these toys, instigate an uprising, make a revolution, and build Ukraine, your new home – read them the story of “Cippolino,” which is originally Italian, and also show them the Soviet animated cartoon.
The dolls are based on the the sketches of the cartoon characters [below]. The sketches of Lemon and Pickle are somewhat modified, to reflect today’s political situation. I did not ruin the dolls by sticking St. George’s ribbons on them, since they will outlive the war in Donbas and the rest of the politics. And children will play with them for a long time, thinking up new roles and new stories for them.
