My daughter started school in September, a week behind the other children, so we decided to take advantage of her last few days of freedom and chose to make a trip to Seven Stories on one of them. Through the week when the schools are open, it is lovely and quiet there so perfect for a visit with a toddler. The new exhibition that has just opened is Mystery, Magic and Midnight Feasts - Enid Blyton. This is just manna from heaven from me as I grew up surrounded by Enid Blyton books full of adventures and wonderful characters. I was more excited than the kids!!

Next up was a visit to Mallory Towers, these were some of my very favourite stories when I was younger, I loved reading of the adventures of Darrell and her pals. Eva dressed up as a Mallory Towers girl and I have to say she looked beautiful!
I think this must be about the 5th time we have visited Seven Stories and we enjoyed it as much as the first time we went. It is fantastic and interactive, no worrying about the kids touching stuff they are not meant to! The staff are lovely and friendly and and the exhibitions change quite regularly. The newest one is 'Tiger, Mog and Pink Rabbit' to celebrate Judith Kerr's 90th birthday. We plan to make at least one more trip this year to attend one of the many Christmas events they have planned, not sure which one yet as there are many! Probably http://www.sevenstories.org.uk/whats-on/events/117503/mornings-with-maisy, as this sounds good for both my kids.
Keep up the good work Seven Stories!!
