    These are all carved wooden figures, or toys, that were hand painted. They are on display at the Society of California Pioneers. My personal favorite of them is the three monkeys, which is aptly titled, "Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil, See No Evil."

    Anyone know any history of these?

    From my recent trip to the Society of California Pioneers...
