Australian sculptor John Abery has created a series of sculptures about childhood memories. The sculptures, which are primarily made of wood depict oversize ‘hyper-real’ items that are or were of significance to his and other people’s childhoods. The sculptures include an oversize teddy bear that is free standing at a height of 1.8 meters.

Also part of the collection is a oversize spinning top, oversize children’s tricycle, oversize lego man toy, huge bowl of marbles, large meccano set truck and a massive trinket box full of various sewing and dice and other items. All of the sculptures have been made oversize to emphases what these objects are like for children.
