I love taking my grandkids here! They love every part of the experience - from picking out their piece, their colors and adornments and I love getting the time to just talk with them while they finish their project. It always give them a good sense of accomplishment!

I took my daughter and three friends here for her ninth birthday. The girls had a blast! There were so many different pieces to choose from: we came home with a dog, a gnome, a dragon and a penguin.
