there's a place on Yieryi Dajie, roughly opposite the main gate of Yunnan Normal University, that sells art supplies. dunno how kiddie-friendly their stuff is, but it'd be a good place to start looking.
there's also a kids' arts/music school called Tongyi on Longxiang Jie, should that be of interest.
@Omgiri - Samoana is on the same strip as Sandra's - i.e. pedestrian street outside with plenty of space for parked bikes. something solid (is anything solid round here?) to lock to might be a harder requirement.
no-one's reviewed this place for nearly 3 years! i think i know why: it's solid. a bit boring maybe, but they get the job done: food on the table in good time, attentive staff, wide selection of items. the 'Prague Breakfast' is a fine feed, still good value after the recent price increase.
i've recently rediscovered this place. it's a little hit and miss, but i have to say that with a little experimentation, you can find some quality food here. while not perfect, the vindaloo is the best i've had.
i first sampled the Silver Spoon burgers a few weeks back - not bad at all, though i was unconvinced that they were 1/2 pound. another visit yesterday, and this time i was persuaded... definitely a fat burger. i was very happy with my cheese and bacon burger. diners with large appetites, be warned - you'll need a side of something to make a meal - the burger is just a burger - no fries.
