Little Toys is a drama about the beautiful and skilled village woman Ye Xiuxiu, who crafts clay and bamboo toys for her husband to sell in a nearby town, but whose life is torn apart by war and economic exploitation. The film stars two Chinese screen divas Ruan Lingyu and Li Li-li as mother and daughter who flee their small town and move to Shanghai.This gripping melodrama features stunning performances by Ruan and Li set against the type of progressive, patriotic background typical of the silent masterpieces pioneered by Shanghais Lianhua Studios.
