Very kitschy, and very fun. The Magic Garden: "In hours it's fully grown - it's magic!" We had one of these years ago, and while we recall some of the pink blossoms being a little bit lacklustre after adding the "magic liquid," it was a fun experience nonetheless. Like any kid concept turned amusing focal point for adults (hello paint-by-numbers trends, etc...), we think this would make a great white elephant gift or stocking stuffer.
The magic garden is available from the Curiosity Shoppe online for $6, but we found ours in Chicago's Chinatown (don't remember the price!). We also found it at Grand Illusions Ltd for $8.38 - with a promise that your magic garden will be complete in 10 hours. Has anyone else gotten sucked into this Chia pet-esque activity before? Happy gardening!
