Pretty Paws Factory lets kids be the architects of their own plush toys. Pretty Paws supplies all the raw materials, and then pint-sized guests turn these parts into bunny rabbit princesses, teddy bears wearing polo shirts, and puppies dressed as ballerinas. In addition to fun outfits, kids receive adoption certificates and optional animal accouterments such as ear piercings and sound boxes that enable toys to talk without invoking any ancient warlock curses.
