They can admire the service station–themed space's car-seat booths, watch flat-screen TVs, or suggest ways to turn a socket wrench into a curling iron as stylists pull their tools out of Craftsman cabinets.

Although Sapora Playworld's mascot Rocky the polar bear lives miles from the South Pole, he's rarely seen without his signature scarf.
