Do you remember the toys you loved the most as a kid?
For a lot of us, they had a real power: they spurred on our imagination, helped us invent our own worlds, and maybe most of all, they were ours.
For a kid, owning something, whether it's small and ragged or big and extravagant, can mean a whole lot.
And as these pictures from Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti seem to prove, that's true for kids around the world.

Galimberti spent 18 months taking these shots of kids with their favourite toys in countries across the globe. He calls the series 'Toy Stories'.
And the stories are pretty interesting: before taking each picture, he would try to play with each child's toys, and he found that generally, the kids who were living more affluent lives tended to be more possessive of their stuff.
The kids who had access to fewer or cheaper toys were much more open to sharing what they had.

Although he noticed a difference in kids' willingness to share, he also saw similarities across the board. Galimberti says "at their age, they are all pretty much the same; they just want to play."
