There is story telling in the shop. Now, not that I’m biased, but I think the story is beary good, possibly the best I have ever heard. It’s all about a brave little bear, called Cameron, and his adventures. You should check it out! What a classic!! You can even take a picture of me home….what more could anyone ask for?

There is even a quiet room which I have made great use of. I will be sad to see it go after Toddler Fest.
