Wasaga Beach At Your Service: Dopey Kid Originals
Every now and then a business comes along that is truly unique. Dopey Kid Originals is one of those. It's so original in fact that I wasn't sure how to categorize it for this website. Is it a day camp? A retail store? Do I file it under events? Is it for tourists or residents? The answer as it turns out is all of the above. The focus of Dopey Kid Originals is to bring out the creativity of children which hardly even sounds like a business. It sounds like pure fun.
As I listened to Dopey Kid Originals owner Danielle Atkinson describe her business, I couldn't help but wonder how she would do on that CBC TV show the Dragons Den. In recent weeks, several local people have stood in front of the celebrity investors trying to pitch their ideas. I can just picture entrepreneur and loan shark Kevin O'Leary salivating over the idea of franchising the intense desire of parents to entertain, engage and educate their children. Dopey Kid Originals is a great idea and it is our pleasure to be featuring them this week on wasaga.com.
