Where would I be without the Guardian? Smile

These gifs have been produced directly from Richard Balzer’s collection of 18th and 19th century toys that used rudimentary animation techniques to create what must at the time seemed to have been absolutely magical effects to their owners.

More from the Balzer collection. A Zoetrope gif depicting defeat of the devil ...



... opening the door to a demon ...



... monkeys passing a hat ...



... and some jugglers.





I like them all!
