Fantastic morning spent casting and painting toy soldiers and fairies. Staff are super friendly and we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Well worth a visit and if you’re lucky, you might get to see the staff making moulds. They have lots of kits to purchase so you can make your own chess sets, soldiers or fairies at home.
We had a very enjoyable afternoon. Did even a small workshop. We are no Toy Soldier Fans but even though it was interesting to see and paint a little bit. Further factory is one of a kind.
Great childhood memories. Beautiful shop very friendly lady shows us around
The staff were very helpful and engaging. They were absolutely sound, it was like talking to your mam! We were told the history of the company as the “toy” was being made. The kids were engaged and interested from as soon as they walked in the door to when they left. The kids loved the painting of the “toy” they choose and at no time felt rushed. All the paint was there on the table and they were basically told “have at it”. The kids loved it and we’re looking forward to our next visit. 👍
