Museum of Childhood
OK gamers, here's a tip. It's Sunday and the the kids are driving you crazy (Its in their job description). Your never going to get the peace and quiet you need to paint that model, read that book, write a scenario or just play the game. So why not "kill two birds with one stone" as the saying goes. If you live in or near London take the kids to the Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green. The kids will be guaranteed to have a good time and I suspect most adults do to. There are plenty of toys on display that will make you feel young again and some that will almost certainly elicit an excited exclamation of "I had one of those!". There is an interesting section on Toy soldiers including some moulds for casting metal models which were interesting to see. This is a chance for you to look all innocent at your partner and say "I never knew these were here" and then turn to the kids and start their indoctrination in 'The way of the miniature'.
