Spooky fun in soldier factory

Calling all zombies, phantoms, witches and mad scientists for some giggles - there will be a whopping nine days of fun at Ireland's only toy solider factory. Every year, the Toy Soldier Factory surpasses itself and this mid-term break it is offering a bigger and better three hour Halloween event which includes a scary movie.

The antics will kick off on Saturday, November 28, until Sunday, November 5, and the workshops will run from 10am until 1pm and again in the afternoon from 2-5pm.

There will be fun creepy arty workshops which will leave everyone shivering with fright but of course there will be giggles along the way. Nippers with ghoulish intentions can choose two figures from a crackling witch, petrifying pumpkin, eerie cat, spooky ghosts and new for this year will be Frankenstein Monster, Laughing Vampire, Howling Werewolf and Pirate Skull.

Children will learn how to make the metal figure and then they can use their creative side to pick their own colours and start painting. After 90 minutes, children can watch a scary Halloween film. To book go to or phone 026-40342.
