Brought my kids there before. Be prepared for some hard selling when your kiddos are in the workshop and you have nowhere to go but to wait for their workshop to end.

Ever thought of going too but I suspect hard selling. I believe their main aim is to sell something..the workshop is to entice parents/child to their place..

Are there many kids in one session genmai?

fluffylicious,
I signed up my 2 kids, in the end only one attended. The younger one don't want to be left alone and cried. They were strict that no parent remain in the workshop (I guess they want us to be outside listening to their sale pitch) so I was asked to bring her out of the room to prevent interrupting the workshop. The elder one stayed and said she enjoyed eating the ice-cream (abeit a little salty).

blueblue,
If I dun recall wrongly, there are around 16 seats in the workshop.

They are a publishing house and they have roughly as many salesperson as the no. of seats in the workshop. You'll get personal attention while waiting. ;)

I dropped my elder gal off and walked to a nearby coffee shop to wait.

We have bring our children to the workshop last month and they have enjoy the ice cream making. From the workshop my children have learn the science of making ice cream.
The sharing of the preview for the parents is rather informative too.
We have also purshase the program for our chirldren , my children have also enjoy and benific the Total Development program.
You should have a open mind to view the program and this program are also not sold in the retail channel.

I think better spend my money on an ice cream machine since not so expensive like last time. At least if the kids don't like, I can keep the machine or give it to someone to try. There are also many methods to make your own ice cream at home.

Sending your kids to a workshop for something you can do in your own kitchen will only lessen the time u spend with your kids and maximise profits for others.

Encourage active parenting. :)
