@ V&A Museum of Childhood, Cambridge Heath Road, London E2 9PA
A major new exhibition charting the transformation of childhood in Britain during the years between the last Olympic Games in London in 1948 and the present day. Taking in changes in entertainment, health, family, fashion and play, exhibits will range from 1950s NHS prescription glasses to the 2005 Teddy mobile phone designed for children under five. The exhibition will consider issues of poverty, politics, safety and technology through objects, stories and the voices of children themselves.
