Over Easter ( I know, a while ago now!) I spent a few days drawing toys from my childhood. I also visited the Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green for the second time now, and I really recommend it, there is so much to see, including loads of toys I remember having or wanting when I was younger, and some slightly creepy toys and collections which I didn't have! I did a couple of the drawings below at the museum, and some of toys from home.


  1. These drawings are terrific! I especially love the raggedy old bear >_< he reminds me of mine! (I still sleep with my bear hehe. I am bad at being an adult :(

    I had a furbie when i was younger, i told my parents if they got it for me i would teach it french! They were under the impression it was an educational toy O_o haha.

    I love your blog <3 i am going to go and explore it further :D i think i saw some life drawing in your other post? I love life drawings! One of my favourite art forms <3 xxx

  2. wow, these are so great charolette... i love the toy in your cereal one.. you are sooo talented.

  3. I was about to email you this, in response to the comment you left on my hat pattern post, when I noticed I couldn't because you don't have your email linked to your blog! You should definitely do it, it's so handy!

    "Thank you! & You totally can! I honestly think there isn't a single person who can't wear hats. :) The best thing about them is that they knit up super fast so if you don't like one, you can always make ten other ones! :)"

    BTW, these are super cute drawings. :3

  4. Aww, this is such an adorable concept, such lovely pictures! xx

  5. I love going to the museum with my sketch pad and seeing other people sketching too! XxElly @

  6. Hi Charlotte! Thank you so much for the comment on myblog- First one!! I noticed in your post above that you have been to the Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green; my placement in London is in Bethnal Green so I will definately take a visit! Thank you again for the post and I love your drawings!

  7. Thanks everyone for the kind comments!
    Tilly - I had a furbie too, I had to shut it in the wardrobe because it wouldnt stop talking. Thats so funny you convinced them it would teach you french! Ive only done life drawing a few times, but Ive gotten some interesting drawings out of it, I wanna go again.
    Megan, thanks for the tip, I will add my email.
    Nicole, you should definitely check it out when you are there, its great and they usually have kids art in the entrance. Hope your placement goes well!
    Elly - sketching in museums is fun, I love the atmosphere, I went yesterday.
    Thanks Julie and Francesca, I really enjoyed drawing them.
