Monster Doors
October 30th, 2014

I came across this photo via a Facebook share, and I am IN LOVE with these adorable monster doors! Just seeing the initial photo brightened my day (a little whimsy every day keeps your heart healthier, I swear it)…


Rounded Superhero Mask
October 24th, 2014

You know those photos of babies with giant flower headbands, sort of like a second head, or some kind of moon orbiting the sleeping cherub? We don’t have any of those photos of Miss P. Partly that is because she never slept, but also she had NO INTEREST in keeping something on her head, or…


Aviator
October 23rd, 2014

One of my favorite costumes in our collection is the Aviator. I have a little boy, who at 18 months LOVES airplanes and so I can only imagine that in a year or two he will want to pretend fly them. This is the perfect costume to help inspire the imagination. Not only that, but…

Argggggh you ready?
October 16th, 2014

Are you ready to see some more of our SHOW EXCLUSIVE costumes? These will only be available at our in-person selling events, so make plans to meet us at one of our fun expos, fairs, or mall shows. Your first opportunity to shop The Whimsy Factory will be Saturday, October 18th. This will be our…


Welcome to the Whimsy Factory!
October 15th, 2014

We are so excited to open our “doors” and start sharing the whimsy. I say “doors” because we are not a brick and mortar shop (yet?). Instead, we will be offering our collection of children’s costumes and dress-up clothes primarily at selling events across the state of Minnesota, as well as online (the “shop” tab…
