I did a few cursory searches, so apologies if I missed a thread on this. 

I am looking for an accurate list of the toys (tin soldiers, etc.) Alexei had in Ekaterinburg.  Would be interested if the younger grand duchesses had any either.  I recall reading a bit about his toys in the Kitchen Boy, so there must be a list or inventory somewhere. 

Any help would be much appreciated; again, it must be accurate

Here is the list of items found in Ekaterinburg from the Main Alexander Palace Website. I did not review the entire list, but check out items #319 and #321.

Also, some items were found by Sokolov, and even photographed, I know there is his chess table, and some toys. I noticed also in The Kitchen Boy too.

Here is chess table and toy soldiers(down photo), upper are their clothes photo, found at Ipatiev House:

Thanks for the pics Nena, haven't seem them before.  Actually to see all the pics that Sokolov found would be interesting. 

JT, I believe the Grand Duchesses didn't bring toys with them.  After all Maria was 18 (turned 19 while in Ipatiev house) and Anastasia was 16 (turned 17 at IH) they were seen as women,  16 was the average age of marriage for any young female.   I am sure they would of bought embroadry (sorry spelling), books etc but not toys or dolls.
