Londonís naughtiest schoolkids celebrated at Museum of Childhood

New exhibition displays the items Londonís schoolchildren have tried to sneak into schools.
October 16, 2013, 7:51 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- A new exhibition at the V&A Museum of Childhood will shed light on the sort of items London's schoolkids try to sneak into school. Confiscation Cabinet has been put together by artist and teacher Guy Tarrant. His display cabinets will show artefacts gleaned from 150 different London primary and secondary schools over three decades. The items will be displayed at the V&A Museum of Childhood, London's only museum devoted to children through the ages. The museum is located in Bethnal Green, a short journey from the City and West End. Visitors planning a trip to London should first check out LondonTown.com, London's best website for details of cheap hotel rooms in London, with constantly updated information ensuring you will get the best price available.

The objects that will be displayed at the Museum of Childhood include homemade games, keepsakes, cult toys, peculiar adornments, weapons and other forbidden objects which characterise the flotsam and jetsam of contemporary school children and demonstrate the way things have changed over the past 30 or so years.

Since qualifying as a teacher, Guy Tarrant has investigated pupil interaction, play and resistant behaviour. The objects in the cabinets highlight mischievous and distracted behaviour played out in the controlled school setting where children spend so much of their time. These confiscated items are evidence of the pupils' playful and impulsive activities and how they may reject or evade rules. They are also a fascinating record of children's changing tastes over the years, as well as a reminder that kids have always been keen to find new and inventive ways to bend the rules about what they can and can't take into London's playgrounds.
