While the soon to be former President of the United States searches for a new home outside of the White House, his giant baby blimp has found a permanent home.
Born in the United Kingdom in 2018, the giant balloon has found a home in The Museum of London. The giant orange baby wearing a diaper and holding a mobile phone in a tiny hand was a part of the protests that sprouted when Donald Trump made a visit to England.
The Museum of London director Sharon Ament spoke on the new acquisition saying, “by collecting the baby blimp, we can mark the wave of feeling that washed over the city that day and capture a particular moment of resistance.”
The baby blimp will become just one of the exhibits in the museum’s “protest collection”. The collection also includes artifacts from women’s suffrage, Iraqi War protests, and spending cuts in Britain.
Created in a London pub, a group of friends were looking to express their displeasure over the U.S. President’s policies.
Since its birth, the baby blimp has flown over the Houses of Parliament and made an appearance in the United States.
