Yes but not for a long time - it's great isn't it !

Yes but not often I trek into town. Loaded friends practically live in there!

It was kind of full of snobbish women but the little play area thing's a really good idea, pity I never got my hot chocolate though!

Didn't really like it.

I bought DD maxi cosi travel system there. It is expensive but for the odd treat why not?

I thought it was magical when it first opened - I think it's gone downhill a bit since.

My dd favourite shop, we bought her a bed canopy there last week.

WE did our Christmas shopping in there last year and they had lots of lovely activities such as treasue hunts, party games and arts and crafts. The highlight of the day was pass the parcel watching lots of pushy parents prompting their little darlings to "hold" or "pass". Dd won and we got evils of the other parents all afternoon.

A lovely shop although the cafe is a let down.

I don't really get what all the fuss is about.

They do sell some nice stuff, but a lot of it you can get elsewhwere a lot cheaper, and who pays £45 for a fairy costume??!!!

And it is always crammed with people, and their delightful children, running amok and trashing the place!!!

Have to agree the dressing up stuff is over priced, we twnd to take dd as a treat and then buy her one thing, although we amke an exception at Christmas as I just like the atmosphere.

bed canopy was only £24.99 which I thought was reasonable, to make on myself would have costed similar.

I had tomato pasta there (in the cafe) and it was nothing special tbh, but the shop is lovely.
