“Ylpön lapset” or “Ylppö’s children” was originally a collection of some 100 dermatological moulages commissioned by Arvo Ylppö, Finland’s future archiatre, in Berlin between 1918 and 1920. 48 of these moulages are now in the collections of the Öffnet externen Link im aktuellen FensterHelsinki University Museum and 30 in the collections of another Finnish museum, the Children’s Castle Hospital Museum.
Some of the “Ylppö’s children” were originally used in the medical instruction collection, whereas others were displayed in two exhibitions of which another one was a travelling exhibition. The objective of both exhibitions was to educate the visitors about the care of children under the age of one, and the exhibitions also included a large amount of other observation material.
