The V & A Museum of Childhood is a superb place to go with babies and children of all ages. If you are a new mum with a baby is great to meet up with other new mums for coffee, great choc brownies and fairly priced food.
There is a sensory play area for babies that are sitting/crawling and toddlers, you can sit in there with a tiny baby too.
For the older and walking kids there is a sand pit, Lego table, dressing up, punch and judy to do yourself, a games area with board games, also rocking horses yeeehaa! An electric train thats 20p per train (but never seems to work), Magnetic play, a massive robot with a turning cog!
For the under 3’s there is a little play area upstairs to the left side as you walk in, its a great place to send Dads to when its their day to do the child care. It takes you back to your own childhood with starwars toys, cindy dolls, matchbox cars and much much more…
Superb shop with a splendid book selection.
AND ITS ALL FREE! Open weekdays and weekends until 5.45pm
