Christmas Windows in Paris!

The shops in Paris were gearing up for Christmas on my recent day trip.  Printemps' windows were still under wraps but Galeries Lafayette were on display, and the facade of the shop itself looked pretty magnificent with its lights.

The window displays had a theatre show theme:
The Rockettes - after those at New York's Radio City Hall - all the puppets moved to music and they were SO cute!  The Christmas girl puppets were all doing a high kick routine!  There was a little ramp in front of every window so little children could get a good view of everything - very thoughtful.

The next window along was West Side Story and then came Mamma Mia seen below - the dolls moved up and down inside the top of the cake LOL!

I didn't catch which musical/show this was from but the flying teddies were just TDF!  They moved up and down - maybe it was a take on Mary Poppins? 

The windows of the 2 neighbouring department stores are always a delight and a magical place for children to visit, including me!
