We should have carved out more time to see this than two hours. Definitely thought the high tea was worth it. They even have high chiars for the dolls!

Nana took my 3rd grader and I and we were very impressed. First visit, love how clever everything is arranged. Staff very helpful. Thought the "tea time" restaurant was ok, kinda pricy for the amount of food, service quite slow

Sorry for the late response. I believe they do on the doll only. They do not pierce humans.
