The space was designed by Shatha herself, she wanted it to feel like you have walked into a birthday party where the kids get to role play and dress up the dolls with dresses similar to the ones they can choose for themselves as well. There is also an interactive theatre that has illustrations of the dresses in different occasions where the kids can come along and play together in the whimsical space.
