i’m writing this about two years after i actually went to the v&a museum of childhood, ha! i was sorting through my photos recently and came across these from when i went a couple years ago. at the time i only had my kit lens and didn’t know how to use my camera as well as i do now, so a lot of these photos were quite dark and the white balance was totally off. a bit of photo editing later and i have some presentable photos to show for my time.
am i the only one that’s a little creeped out by this monkey? though i am loving that mustard top and red bow. i used to have a toy panda with glassy eyes too and after a while it totally creeped me out and i had to hide it.
how nice is the work on that little cowboy jacket? love the colours too. i bet you couldn’t find anything like that nowadays. i am totally baffled as to what the thing pictured below it is. some kind of game involving donkeys/horses? i have to admit, i was just drawn to the coloured shapes.
i’d absolutely love to go back some day and have a look around! it was so fun and inspiring, and looking back through these photos took me straight back. hopefully in the future when i have a bit more money, i can go to a few more interesting museums in london and around the uk.
have you been to the museum of childhood? any other museum recommendations?
