What a lovely afternoon we spent in the toy factory we had a wonderful lady Helen helping us she couldn't do enough for us. What a fantastic lady to have working there so friendly remembering kids names ect. She provided pop corn while we were painting. A great hit with the kids.
No rushing us out. As it was quite. Definitely recommend for kids 6 or 7 up. Unless an adult helped with painting.

Made an online booking for 3 adults and 3 children, age 7, 8, 10.
We were here for my moms birthday 4 years ago, she wanted her grandchildren to make something on her birthday so we surprised her with a return visit and we had the best day.
Eileen was so lovely to us 4 years ago and Marie was equally as kind and welcoming to us this time. She was so kind and attentive, a really lovely lady.
The children chose between fairy doors and little figurines and they loved painting them.
Due to Covid, we have not taken our children to any indoor places/activities so this was our first indoor experience and it was so safe and well spaced out with social distancing.
For anyone thinking of a nice family afternoon, this place is perfect and you take home your beautiful souvenirs that you painted.
We will be back. Thank you so much for making my moms birthday so special.

We had a family group of three kids and three adults and they could accommodate with next day booking via website. Had a little demo of pouring moulds and painting miniatures. If you have smaller kids try painting the wooden fairy doors.

Good morning and thank you for taking the time to put up a lovely review about us. Yes, we recommend any children under 5 to paint the fairy, monster, Santa, castle doors and leave the model painting to the older children and of course the big artists the adults. Hope to see you all soon. Regards The team of the Toy Soldier Factory

Visited the toy soldier factory with 2 young children. The staff were really helpful showing the children how the models were made and then giving instructions on how to complete the painting. The children are now hooked having bought some model moulds to make at home. It was extremely interesting and very different to what they would normally do on a day out. Enjoyed by all and we will definitely return when we’re in the area again.

My husband and I and our two boys spent a very enjoyable afternoon making and painting models and viewing the Waterloo exhibit.
We all loved it and even bought some kits to bring some of the fun home.
Couldn't recommend it highly enough for people of all ages.

We saw the signs and stopped in on a whim. After driving for a while on tiny backgrounds, we pulled in and my husband says, “I know this place!” If you’re into miniature soldiers, war gaming, etc. then you’ll love this place. We were able to make our own leprechaun miniatures, including assembling the molds, pouring the metal, and painting them. Mine is hideous, but I’m a terrible painter. So we left with two Irish souvenirs that we made with our own hands to commemorate an experience on our trip, Better than some imported googah any day. If you can’t stand to look at your monstrosity. You can also purchase a nice version created by the painters there.

Hi Kerry, thank you for your 5-star review. We're over the moon you both enjoyed making and painting your very own leprechauns. The leprechaun workshop is quite new and it's great to get positive feedback. Enjoy your Irish souvenirs and we hope to see you on your next visit to Ireland.
