Review by Des Lewis: “I am sure this anthology is one of the rare few that will hang around in my mind as a great one full of disparate styles and leitmotifs to form a unique gestalt. A Yggdrasil of Toys”

Review by Linda Rogers van Krugel: “The stories in Playground of Lost Toys reflect the other minds that parallel play with adult imagination: magic realism, horror and surrealism, where extreme child consciousness is formed in the interaction of good and evil, the light and shadows that play on nursery walls.”
