Thousands took to the streets of London to protest over Donald Trump's arrival in the U.K., on day two of the US president's state visit.

As well as Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and spokespeople from the Liberal Democrats and Green Party, the event marching from Parliament Square to Whitehall was also attended by a host of creative minds – as the examples that follow illustrate.

Now a staple of Mr. Trump's visits to the U.K., the Donald Trump Baby blimp took to the skies above protesters after a prolonged time being inflated.

A team of organizers wearing red jumpsuits and hats marked “Trump Babysitters" launched the balloon to cheers from dozens of onlookers at Parliament Square, where nearby roads are sealed off and police are standing guard in anticipation of large protests.

The Museum Of London is in talks to acquire the inflatable, which depicts the U.S. President in a diaper and clutching a mobile phone, as part of its protest collection.

Just as they did a year ago, a number of protesters came armed with toilet paper depicting Mr. Trump.

The novelty toilet paper roll was sold from shopping carts along the protesters' route.

Seller James O'Brien, from County Mayo, described the £5 paper as “the only toilet paper in the world that's already got crap on it."

Sticking with the scatological humor, a 16ft talking robot of Mr. Trump sitting on a gold toilet also attracted onlookers.

The robot says the phrases “No collusion," “You are fake news," and “I'm a very stable genius" – the audio of which is Mr. Trump's own voice.

American Don Lessem paid $25,000 of his own money to make the robot, working with a factory that he uses to build mechanical dinosaur models to sell to zoos and museums.

The political artist has been a frequent fixture at London protests for years, and his latest creation takes aim at Mr. Trump's animosity towards much of the mainstream media, or “fake news" outlets.

The painting depicts the President as a constricting snake wrapped around a pen which reads “press freedom."

A man dressed in a gorilla costume and Donald Trump mask stood inside a cage beside the baby blimp.

A sign on the cage says “do not feed the gorilla, he only eats chlorinated chicken," in apparent protest at U.S. government hopes to see U.K. food standard laws changed in a future trade deal.

Don't tell mom!

Family secrets are a norm. Who doesn't have them? What's fun is figuring out who is keeping what from who? Normally it's dad trying and failing to keep things form mom. Let's face it, nine times out of ten, dad is the court jester trying pushing the line when mom is not looking. So dad is usually begging the little ones to keep a kabash on the events that transpire in mom's absence.
