V&A Museum of Childhood hosts gallery of confiscated toys

Teacher and artist Guy Tarrant has put together a gallery of toys confiscated from London schoolchildren, currently on display at the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green.

The collection comes from 150 schools with toys spanning 30 years.

The idea came about because Tarrant was interested in the idea of toys being used by children as tokens of rebellion and resistance to school routines and teacherly discipline.

Some highlights from the eight cases on display include a headless Mr T figure, a paper chatterbox and a Troll doll.

Take a look at two of the cases of toys too cool (or naughty) for school below:
