Welcome to Piccolo, a magazine interested in Children's and Young Adult Literature. You might be a time traveler, pirate, fairy, magician, or mermaid. You don't have to say it—but your secret is safe with me.
Today, we welcome the story of Istanbul Toy Museum and Sunay Akın with the newest book in the Kara Karga Soruyor series. Afterwards, during my visit to the museum in the past weeks, we set off to the universe of IOM's Deputy Director Aslı Nuhoğlu, who reflects the magic of the museum with her words, and learn the intricacies of the dialogue between adults and children during the curation. At the end of today's issue, we take a look at Piccolo's suggestions and list the nostalgic cartoons that those born in the 1990s will recognize as they see it.
[In the museum] one of the first editions of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's book The Little Prince and the first toy of The Little Prince ever produced can be found; you also can see the toys of The Wizard of Oz, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and Don Quixote.
Swipe up or scroll down the page if we're interested and we'll be there.
