Childhood inspiration, fun and games

I have discovered the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green in London, I loved it! Some much to see – tin toys, puppets, spiro-graphs, sooty and sweep, folk art toys. A great place to be inspired by and reminisce about.

Great exhibition of Judith Kerrs illustrations ‘From The Tiger Who Came To Tea to Mog and Pink Rabbit‘, lots of fun interactions for the kids and big kids too!

Lovely detail and craftmanship in the mosaic entrance with the 3d pattern.

There was a great exhibition where artists worked with school children to create an exhibition called ‘stuff of nightmares‘, the whole thing was put together very well with a pretty dark side from the line up of toys who were suspects, a lovely hand quality to the newspaper trees, great mix of toys and random things – it created a whole scene! Here’s a couple of photos of it.
