Doll Day Out

I had a lovely day out on Sat, first to Broadway Market for coffee and almond croissants & then I took Russ to my favourite museum in London, the V&A Museum Of Childhood. It was fun to see the little kid in him as he reminisced about Play People, Smurfs and the Star Trek Enterprise. I could spend hours in there, especially the dolls house section, its incredible.


My Favourite Dolls




My Favoutite Pull Along Toys




There is a really interesting exhibition of Children's Clothes through the ages, with some beautiful paintings and drawings.


Then we popped by Hackney City Farm, where there were some very happy pigs !

  13. Sounds like fun, I've heard lots of great things about that museum. Really want to go and see it for myself. I love Hackney city farm! The pigs are always so cute. Often wish we lived nearer to the east end of London as there's lots of cool stuff around there to do/see. Faye x
