Mushroom Peddler Ice Cream Social: “How to Adopt a Baby Dragon

2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Wanted: Loving homes for adorable baby dragons.
Now on the Endangered Magical Species list, dragons have been seen less and less as the modern world has made it difficult for them to find safe places to live. Because of this, many dragons have abandoned their little ones, often before they even hatch.
In an effort to prevent the world from losing this wonderful creature forever, The Mushroom Peddler is seeking loving surrogate mothers to adopt and raise the little ones as their own. The hope is that people will spread the word that something needs to be done to save the dragons. This world just wouldn’t be the same without them.
Please join The Mushroom Peddler for a baby shower in honor of all those who have decided to welcome baby dragons into their hearts. You will be instructed on the proper care of your little one and will hear the story of “The Perfect Blanky” written and read by The Mushroom Peddler. There will be some fun surprises for those who attend!
Caution: While baby dragons are absolutely adorable, they may get into lots of trouble if not watched properly. Please take on this responsibility only if occasional singed curtains won’t be an issue.

Fee: $245.00 (includes 6-inch “Smoulder”)
Limited Edition of: 30

The drop dead gorgeous show stopping adult SD BJD Wicked Queen may try to reign over our event from her ominous perch at the center of each table.
