last week we saw some lovely pics of the Museum of Childhood in Internet and my kids were asking to go. So today was the day. We set off early as I wanted to be back for my kids evening Madrassa. We took the underground and all four of us went to discover this new, refurbished Museum.
It is one of the newly refurbished attraction in London. We already visited the newly restored London Transport Museum, and today was our chance to see the freshly made Museum of Childhood.
We arrived 10 minutes before they opened and queued up outside. Yes, we actually queued up! At 10am they opened the gates and already school buses were awaiting at the main entrance.
The kids were impatient but i have to stop them to wait for a dear sister.
So we waited for about 30 minutes outside. then decided to wait at the entrance but unfortunately no sign of the sister. So we decided to proceed with our visit. Mash'Allah.
There were lots of different toys, some bring memories of my childhood, some other bring horror in my face as I think about the purpose of Barbie and Ken and other toys such guns and military machine.
The best been the old toys such as dolls house, the smurfs, Teddy bears, Punch and Judy, the old spade and bucket, Lego blocks and Meccano of course and many more.
Kids had a great time. We miss the sister. We pray she is fine and well. Amin.
We even spend sometime in the Quite Room, feeding the baby and praying, hamdulillah.
We went back home with gifts for our friends and family and pics.
So here for you, our pics of the day!
