You haven't been back into VAM for long but you've certainly made your mark with your great posts, which goes to prove my long held assertion that 1961 was a great year for producing top draw VAM collectors! lol!

Hi folks

Mrs Gunner suprised me with "How would you like to go to the V&A Childhood Museum for your Birthday ?" Shocked

So yesterday ( thanks for all the B'day wishes  Cool  ) We drove to Crewe and jumped on the train to head to old London town.

After a nice lunch ( that bit was for Mrs Gunner  Wink Laughing ) we headed of to Bethnal Green.

The Museum itself is essentially on two floors and arranged by themes etc . So my mission was to :

-take in the story of childhood
-do plenty of  'oh I had one of those '
-and find our friend  Action Man !

So sorry for the quality of the iPhone photos.

Here is Robbie the Robot from Lost in Space- I wouldn't mind him in the VAM cave !!

Happy Birthday Gunner Munro  B106DC0C-B60F-481F-BF85-7D7C65D4DE71_zpskzamhors


As the exhibitions are arrange by themes our  Action Man was scattered around the place. Hmm I'm thinking 'where is a bit of of a special display for the toy of the decade ??' Smile

First sightings.

Quite sparse but some nice kit.

Nice Scorpion

Lovely Jeep and 105 MM Recoilless rifle . I would have loved this as a kid

Happy Birthday Gunner Munro  C4EA5462-A2DD-46D3-BE45-EB6E8149E235_zpsmipyamqf


Next sighting were these chaps in a section about play imitating real life.

Happy Birthday Gunner Munro  5E35B21D-6CC4-45F4-A2D7-43A186667967_zps2hasrdby

All the Sea Wolfs I've seen so far have been Blue ?

Happy Birthday Gunner Munro  ECB1D2AC-2EB9-4620-881E-B2B69368A14D_zpssp44zhip

The SAS HALO (?) Para was nice too.

The ceremonials were special weren't they ? Also the LRDG set is a good looking set.

The RM Artic and Scuba diver

Happy Birthday Gunner Munro  F3072B39-9299-474A-8E1C-1239C9692419_zps2uly4l0j

The next spot was this fantastic display of Action Force.

Happy Birthday Gunner Munro  CDEBDF78-7F4D-43C1-9085-D741A4F37679_zpsgu2nm1xm

Imagine having as your job creating these displays for shops and toy fairs ? 🆒

The Action Force was way after my first  Action Man time, but you could see here the way that the VAM 84 range might have gone?

The next sighting was in the story of manufacturing and protoypes.

Final sighting was in a section related to Space around the corner from Staer Wars were these guys.
Palitoy   never seemed to quite get this bit quite right ?

Happy Birthday Gunner Munro  F380B43E-83B6-476D-8447-BD8C0DA5CFC3_zpsbhnah36u

The Dolls house section was brilliant - loads of ideas to support the Airfix Strongpoint Laughing   This kitchen was great almost 1/6th scale I think.

Happy Birthday Gunner Munro  FF5F3460-5BF4-43D7-8A2B-18337BA9E6AF_zpsejn6yhph

Oh I had one of those !!


Lots of fun with a set very similar to this !!

Happy Birthday Gunner Munro  E0B5E783-2081-4AAA-B741-89C10D106A86_zpsafbrmjlv

This was a dream never realised- several kids down the street had one - early 70's (71 -3 ?)

Happy Birthday Gunner Munro  596746CA-4E74-436B-B489-B372C6421D4A_zpsosvss34l

And finally I thought this quote is quite apt for all of us  Laughing
