Retro kid playing with his toys

I´m not that creative to tell a story, but this project is all about a kid from the first half of the 20th century, playing with his (retro) toys.

My first thoughts are about a room from an old house (but in perfect condition) and the kid playing with his toys.

He may be pretend playing a pirate or a cowboy. Something like ToyStory, but without all that shiny 3d look.

The project info says about creating a fantastical character, but I don´t feel like doing so. I hope this isn´t a problem.

If creating a character is a must, then this kid may live in the 21st century, but he plays and dresses in a retro style. But I don´t like that idea at all. I will look as the kid has some serious issues...

I like Matt Kaufenberg´s retro style, I hope I can create my own style but with a similar look, such as these illustrations by Matt:
