Child's Play. City Art Centre. Edinburgh. David. aged 12, obviously had the most tremendous time making the ‘Moonscape with Space Cratt' out of Lego which is on view in this exhibition. as well as a highly resourceful mind. It easily rivals Hew's (aged 15) Meccano Spotter Plane inthe same cabinet. Both are part of an extensive exhibition devoted to Toys through the Ages (from the Victorian era to the presentday) and one of its charms is the carefully recorded detail about each toy given inthe accompanying catalogue. Young Ben Grant tor example was so anxious to start playing with Thumper. the balding and home-made rabbit in cabinet A, that Mrs Grant neverhad time to sew on his ears. Thumper also got left on a bus in Australia, and is evidentiyluciry to have made it to Edinburgh afall. Upstairs a VIP cabinet includes a Teddy lent by Joanna Lumley ‘which will be much missed lorfhe duration otfhisexhibition' and, sitting rather stiflly together, a somewhat motley collection from the leaders olthe main political parties. All loyallysport party colours and are lowered over bythe huge rather matted bear in blue corduroy dungarees belonging to the Prime Minister. The Princess Royal has loaned BlackAngus, a big bruiser ol a bear. and from Lord Hailsham comes a big white rabbit with pink ears and matching nose. As Edinburgh‘s hugely popular Museum of Childhood has shown. there is an unexpected enthusiasm for exhibitions of this sort, and this one certainly shouldn't be missed. A pull-out competition torchildren (aged 7-10 and 11-14 years) is included inthe catalogue, entries to be returned by 1BSept. (Sally Kinnes)
