The Orphans of Mother Goose

Never Never Land, Tacoma, WA


I can't believe I actually found this website. This really takes me back! Displayed on this site is the figurines that were once used in a children's display of a fabulous fairy tale wonderland. I remember going there when it was first exhibited, back in the good-ol-daz (somewhere around 1967).

But no more since vandals screwed it up. The project was abandoned in 2004. All that's left now, is a few of the original playhouse structures, barely visible as what they used to represent. It sure would be nice if this place could get restored; I'd visit it!

Can you imagine the delight in the minds of children when they came upon this place? This was truly heaven! Even the adults took amazement when visiting here.
