The Nightwatch Playmobil toy set

If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by the sheer scale of Rembrandt’s seminal work The Night Watch, this miniature set, created in collaboration between the Rijksmuseum, Playmobil and designer Frederik Roijé, will make it easier to grasp — literally. The tiny versions of Frans Banninck Cocq and Lieutenant Willem van Ruytenburch, two military men who feature prominently in the painting, are spot on from the hats and beards to the jaunty sashes. Art history has never felt so accessible (and adorable!).
