  • Such a great, weird place to spend an hour or two. Passion, history, and a Toyland that reminds me of how I always played with my own toys. Definitely worth a stop!

  • Amazing road trip destination! easy to get to and so much to see. Got there too early to go inside. in full disclosure- my husband thought for sure we would be murdered at this off the side of the road destination and thought I was crazy to want to stop there- I thought it was one of the most magical places in the world. So drag your loves ones there!
  • Best time I have EVER had at a roadside attraction. I drove nearly three hours to check out Keith's magic and was not let down one bit. I arrived early, maybe 8:30 on a Sunday and didn't want to bother Keith so I saw myself around the welcoming grounds, but within about 10 minutes Keith came out in all his bare feet glory and proceeded to give me a personal tour and insight to the countless puns that went with all his lawn art. I felt so silly for not catching 90% of the crafty puns that went with the art. Even without getting the puns, his art made from everyday items is enjoyable to ponder, but they come alive with Keith's abundance of enthusiasm. The creativity and love of his family is on bright display and is a refreshing juxtaposition from the local area, especially the nearby Arant Confederate Park that screams opposite values as those overflowing from the cup of Keith. I ran out of time and could stay to hear more stories or really take in the toy shop, however, I think I will visit again in the future when I am in the Land Between the Lakes.
