“charming place”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

What a charming place it is. Located behind the Farmer's Market is this store with plenty of cute outfits and colorful and fun accessories for little princesses. At the back of the store there's a room for tea parties.

“fun for children under 7”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Lots of fun. Many dressup options for girls but not as many for little boys. The kids loved being served tea and cupcakes as much as playing dressup.

“Don't waste your time or money--even with a Groupon.”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

This place runs Groupons constantly, and having recently changed ownership, we decided to give it a second try. It was the same old stuff from last summer. The "dress up" clothes/shoes/hats etc---are tattered, falling apart, stained, really old, and horrid looking. The owner should be embarrassed. The store part in the front has a lot of baby sized clothing--yet they have dress up clothing for ages 4 and up in the back--so who are they targeting? Ditch the baby stuff and cater to the 4-8 year old group, in the store, that come for the dress up parties. The "tea" is pretty much warm concentrated fruit punch--that is served with extra sugar cubes. Tasted like cough syrup. The cupcakes are from the grocery store--really. We had to make an appointment, and even then, the attendants still weren't very attentive. They were busy cleaning. It was just a waste of time and money. The owner needs to close up shop for a few weeks and regroup. New dress up clothing/shoes/etc are desperately needed!
Clean that front half of the shop and bring in age appropriate merchandise and clothing, for your clientele. This is a poorly executed *new ownership*, that has potential---but they need to throw some cash into the business and give it a facelift.

“Can't wait to go back”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

This was so much fun. My almost 4 year old granddaughter loves all of the Disney princesses and was so excited to go. She immediately picked out Princess Tiana's dress and shoes to wear. She made sure I noticed that they were playing a soundtrack that had Tiana on it, as well.

The front of the store has cute clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc. for little girls. In the back, they have a very large room with racks of costumes, shoes, jewelry, tiaras, wings, magic wands, etc. for the girls to choose from (I should note that their FAQ mentions that boys are not excluded. I'm just assuming the majority will be female). The staff makes sure every girl has attention, letting them pick out their fingernail polish for the mani's, the tiara comb for their updo, and the eyeshadow color for their makeup. I really appreciated that she spoke directly to my granddaughter, but still asked me if it was ok to use some hairspray on her. The finishing touch is the glitter hairspray before sitting down for tea. She got to choose her preferred cup and saucer and her cupcake flavor - both of which were delicious. Every single person that we encountered was friendly and made it feel very relaxed and personal. They are happy to take pictures for you, as well. When we left, she told them that she wanted to come back next time she was here.
