Royal toys

The Norwegian Museum of Cultural History will present an unusual exhibition from now until 30 September, presenting the favorite toys of the 20th century generations of Norway's royal family, from the painted doll's chairs of Princess Ragnhild and Astrid, Crown Prince Haakon Magnus' favorite cow.

The exhibition is sure to be a hit with curious children, who may be surprised to discover that royal toddlers do without jewel-encrusted toys and fall for simple and friendly playthings, too.

Crown Princess Haakon's belled cow and his constant companion "Puttekokken", a knitted doll with long arms and legs, will both be on display, as well as some of his favorite cars.

Princess Martha Louise's absolute favorite, her doll Ruth, will be appearing in the exhibit, alongside some of her beloved stuffed animals, and a wooden cradle painted in a traditional rustic, floral style, rosemalt.

None of King Harald or King Olav's playthings are available. King Harald's toys were left behind in America when the last world war ended and King Olav's can be seen at the palace's exhibition celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth.

But there are some fine older pieces, Princess Martha's dollhouse and dolls, and the rosemalt doll's chairs from 1932 used by princesses Ragnhild and Astrid.

The exhibition also promises unique photographs of the royal family at play.

Favorite items of Crown Prince Haakon and his sister Martha - toys of tradition rather than luxury.
