If you are looking to do a Toyland theme for your Christmas decorating try searching out teddy bears and dolls at your local thrift stores. Wash them in a pillowcase and put them in your dryer for at least 20 minutes, then dress them up with ribbons and holiday fabrics. Group them under your tree, on mantels, and on windowsills. Stack small squares of cardboard together and wrap as a tiny present, then tuck them under a teddy's arm, or wrap an empty box and use it as teddy's seat by the front door.

I like your Toyland theme, I do a little of that and didn't really think about it. I have my daughters old dolls and some teddy bears'. But I found a little bitty red flyer wagon like new at a flea market, so I get that out each year and put a Teddy bear with gift in that. I got some Christmas dresses on my daughers 2 Amercian dolls, and she had doll wicker table and chairs, so I put that out one year. and a little tea set on the table!! And we always set her Christmas story books around. ( I think I saved everything....ha ha) But now with no young ones in the family, we kind of enjoy the toyland. Then I have Santa's etc plopped around. Last year I put the train around the tree, but that didn't work as well as I thought, so probably won't do the train this year. I just don't have enough room. I like a lot of whimsical things too.
