Creegan Animation Factory

The animation factory was actually some sort of thift store that is currently closed, with an auction poster in the window. Epic disappointed!

On the way into Ohio we stopped at a factory of sorts. It was a creepy place that creates giant-sized puppets and wearable costumes. Our 11 yr. old grandson loved it! Very messy but orderly disorder -- started us out with a video and then took around to "look." Stuff was everywhere, along with the owner's record collection. This was such a surprise to us since we stopped there on a whim.

We went on to Dover, OH to see Warther's Carvings and they were amazing as well. All in all, our grandson was impressed with our "day trip," especially when we stopped for pie in a real diner! Wow! Old folks can be fun!

Creegan Animation Factory

This is an animation factory tour of what is purported to be the largest US manufacturer of animated and costume characters. When we went in August almost everyone except the tour guide was on vacation, so there was no manufacturing in process, but we did see both the factory (a converted Woolworths I think) and a video of the factory when it appeared on the travel channel show hosted by the guy who was the mailman in Cheers [John Ratzenburger]. There were a lot of interesting items there and my kids said it was one of the better places we went on that vacation. The tour guide was pretty good, too.
