HOT: Myer Christmas Windows 2015 – Little Dog and the Christmas Wish

The Christmas windows at Myer are an institution in Melbourne and this year celebrates 60 years of the magical display. In the years that I’ve seen the windows I think this is the best Christmas windows yet – because there is a quintessentially Melbourne feel.

The 2015 Myer Christmas Windows are based on the picture book ‘Little Dog and the Christmas Wish‘ by Melburnians Corinne Fenton and Robin Cowcher. The book and the window are an homage to Melbourne set in the 1950s and many familiar Melbourne scenes act as backdrops to the story.

Spot the Skipping Girl Vinegar sign, the Regent Theatre, Block Arcade and the Hopetoun Tea Rooms, the tram tracks and W-class trams of 1950s on a rainy Melbourne day and the clocks of Flinders Street station. Even Myer’s Bourke Street store facade is featured!

Also admire the detail in the figurines, each wearing a custom-made outfit reflecting the styles of the 1950s.

The display is sure to delight young and old and I love the nostalgic, gentle feel of the display. Not too many animatronics, loud music or flashing lights.

A wonderful way to end a trip to the Myer Christmas windows is to pop up to the Myer Giftorium to buy a copy of Little Dog and the Christmas Wish (note that until January the book is exclusively available at Myer stores). As Myer currently have 25% off all children’s books when you buy two or more books I also picked up Jane Godwin and Anna Walker‘s new Christmas themed picture book, What Do You Wish For.

The Myer Melbourne Christmas Windows are on display every day from 7:30am daily until Wednesday 6 January 2016.
