V&A Museum of Childhood launch VTech Digi-Fun workshops for kids

Like mums and dads across the country, I'm currently wracking my brains, trying to come up with ways of keeping the kids entertained during the summer holidays. Well, keep an eye on my "days out" tag (here) where I'm posting news of any special events or free days out that I come across, such as the free Bob the Builder family extravaganza that I blogged about yesterday (here). This looks like another great idea, especially for a rainy day !


This summer the V&A Museum of Childhood has teamed up with the number one manufacturer in children’s electronic learning toys, VTech, to offer a truly unique series of workshops which will to introduce children to the exciting possibilities of the digital word in a fun and engaging way.

Ideal for children aged 4 -9 years old; the Digi-Fun workshops are running every Saturday over the school summer holidays at 2pm from the 23rd July to the 27th August. These free sessions each last one hour and will give kids the opportunity to explore, invent and create with the very latest kid-friendly technology.

Bringing the digital revolution to a new generation…

One of the workshop highlights will include an exclusive preview of the VTech InnoTab, the first ever Tablet computer for kids, which will be in shops from September (available at some workshops). Budding Bailey’s will also have the chance get hands on with the Kidizoom range of digital cameras and videocams.

As part of the sessions children will learn how to take pictures, film and edit their own footage as they embark on an adventure around the museum to find a bunch of mischievous toys that have decided to have a bit of holiday fun!

So if you’re looking for family fun activities to keep both kids (and adults!) entertained this summer holiday, sign up for a Digi-Fun workshop and get down to one of London’s best tourist attractions for kids. As well as the workshops, there’s also plenty to explore in the museum itself…the collection of child-hood related objects and artefacts spans the 1600s to the present day and includes toys, clothing, furniture, art and photography.

VTech Digi-Fun Family Workshops, Saturdays, 23, 30 July and 6, 13, 20, 27 August 2011 14.00-15.00. To book please visit

  1. I love V-Tech, I got a V-Tech "My first computer" when I was about 7, absolutely loved it, didn't realise how sneaky my parents were as it was an educational toy. I think I'd have more fun than the kids at the museum.

  2. My DD would love this but unfortunately we live too far away
