NOW OPEN AT COLONIAL SQUARE IN WAYZATA

Our Name

The Owl and the Octopus represent the spirit of imagination and learning that exists within the spirit of every child – and if we’re lucky, we believe we can retain that spirit – that desire to continue learning and playing through our entire lives.

Our Mascots

Olivia

“The Owl” LOVES to learn! She is full of curiosity and is constantly looking for ways to expand her knowledge of the world. She is sometimes described as “A Little Serious.”

Oswald

“The Octopus” LOVES to play! He is constantly dressing up, using his imagination and sees the world from a unique perspective.  He is sometimes described as “A Little Silly.”

Together, they remind us – and each other – how a thirst for knowledge can coexist with a playful imagination – and how the two may actually rely on each other to truly thrive.
