Where to find baby hand/footprint plaster kit in GTA?

As the subject states, I'm looking for stores that carry those plaster hand/footprint sets in the GTA, preferably ones that are easy to use. I've seen them available on the Babies R Us website, but wanted to see some additional selection.

Also, if anyone's had any experience with them, what were your impressions - no pun intended.
I am...therefore I think :idea:

i'm in Vancouver so I'm not sure if you have a "Michaels" in GTA..but it's an arts and craft store and they sell impression kits

I've also seen these kits at Walmart in the gift card/gift bags section..

the ones at Michaels is about $15 and the one at Walmart is about $8

I tried those one time & they never came out right. Then I found this lady that does all diff. impressions/statues of kids hands & feet & more...

I used Wee Piggies & Paws twice with all my 3 kids & worth the money :!: ... Plus you have so many choices...worth every penny, plus your kids are only small once...

Give them a call...they have reps. all over GTA.

For around $15-20 more you can get this professionally done at Wee Piggies with the bronze effect....in a 8 x 10 wooden Frame. Depending how big the baby is, you can fit 2 hands & 2 feet...

I got mine from Ebay and there was enough for 4 models wich turned out great.
Use warm water and wait untill baby is asleep for best results.

It is not worth getting irritated, it is not worth it.... Wish everyone happiness, and you yourself will be happy.

According to their website, the 8x10 starts at $149. Unless their prices are inflated on the web, thats hardly 10-15$ more.

The $149 is for a Shadow Box...which is diff. & more labour involved than just simple imprints...

I still have my invoice from when we got our 2 plaques last year total $170, but we also got an extra name engraving on a little gold plaque...which was extra $...

Best solution is to just call the place nearest you & ask...they have many diff. products...& some wood frames that have the glass are more money...ours did not come with glass.
