We had some vintage Russian New Year postcards already.
Now it’s turn for the New Year Tree toys back from early Soviet times.
Sometimes things that could be found on Soviet New Year Trees differ greatly from Western Trees. It was usual to put on Russian Tree something with political ideas: the Kremlin Towers, small copies of outstanding Soviet Sportsmen and different technological gadgets.
Also there were often toys with portraits of comrades Lenin and Stalin.
