ORIGIN OF PALEOLITO:
Who could imagine that collect dolls would no longer be something of a child? Something precipitate ten years ago, today became fashionable and, better yet, profession. The designers, graffiti painters and artists in general are invading the world of toy art creations with more fun, merging the world of imagination with reality. This is the case of Rio Ismael Lito designer of 31 years, creator of the puppet "do it yourself" Paleolito, which promises to invade the market and the home fans and collectors of toy art. Our friend got even a site: www.paleolito.com.br. There you will give the whole history of the doll, and they could download wallpapers and view custom suggestions for their Paleolito.
Like all creation begins with a story, this could not be different. Man of the caves, hunted, stones, fire. They are characters from the distant past and a little reminder, but that is one of the most fascinating periods of history. Without documents, the anthropologists have almost exclusively drawings in caves as records of customs and life at the time. Thus begins the story of the birth of the urban toy Paleolithic.
