Abashevskaya toy is an original craft of clay toys, which originated in the 19th century in the Penza region in the village of Abashevo near the town of Spassk. The name of the toy came from the name of the village. Like many other villages where clay could be mined in sufficient quantities, Abashevo was famous for its pottery. In the 19th century, it was primarily dishes. But in the first quarter of the 20th century, when the factory production of dishes became widespread, the craft of clay toys stood out in a separate direction. Animals and people became the heroes of the Abashev toy, like any other folk clay toy. Funny figures of ladies, men, service people, deer, bears, rams, goats, dogs and other animals - all typical characters can be found in the master's house. Nevertheless, the Abashev clay toy has its own characteristics. The main feature is a certain degree of fantasy of the figures. Goats with deliberately long and sharp horns, deer with multi-tiered symmetrical horns, people, as if dressed up in wild carnival masks. Another feature of the Abashev toy is its color. The toy may be unpainted, but more often it is completely painted in a bright, saturated color - red, blue or green, sometimes with the addition of gold and silver on the details. The faces of people and the muzzles of animals are sculpted conventionally and practically do not have any drawings. At the same time, hairstyles and beards, as well as animal hair, are made quite regularly and symmetrically, often with contrasting colors. There are a lot of whistles among Abashev's toys. Moreover, these whistles are sometimes unusually large in size. Holes are made on the sides of the whistle, allowing the whistler to issue original trills.
