Lauren Child and the Discover Center

Now this is definitely going to be a day out for us three soon! I spotted the Discover Center’s Lauren Child exhibit through a competition tweet (to meet Lauren Child!) from Junior magazine.

The Discover Center has the first ever exhibition to bring Lauren Child’s world to life and it’s called Green Drops and Moonsquirters which sounds lovely and inviting. There are illustrations from Charlie and Lola, some of the 3D sets from The Princess and the Pea (which I was lucky enough to work on while at Puffin), as well as lots of hands-on activities for little people.

The exhibition runs from 2 October 2010 – April 2011 and I’m thinking, (as Stratford is a bit of a bugger to get to for us – DLR job), that it might have to be a special treat for Milo’s birthday in November. I it might become his favourite and best exhibit ever!

  1. Looks fab! Might see if we can get there before April! Now, I need to think of a real clever question so we can win the VIP tickets!!! (although I’ll be happy with a goodie bag!)

      I’d be happy with a goodie bag too. Think we are definitely going to try and get there for Milo’s birthday. There’s so much stuff that just sounds perfectly suited for his age that it should be fun!

  2. Ooooh exciting! I used to live near there, and it was a regular play place for us. It’s ‘ok’ for little ones, but I would think the 5plus group get a lot more out of it. xx

      It is exciting isn’t it! I love virtually anything to do with Lauren Child so personally really looking forward to this and hoping the little one likes it too. He likes visiting places and when he is in the right mood to do, he can get a lot out of it. We went to the Tate Modern for his 1st birthday and saw a the Pop Art exhibit which parts of he really responded too positively and other parts he hated. We took him back a month later to compare the change and he loved the bits he hated the first time round, specifically a Keith Haring room. There are other places that we’ve gone to and enjoyed but filed away for when he’s a bit older! Thanks for stopping by!
