Twootie Tart

Twootie fans typically find themselves falling in love with the original Pokemon Egg bath bomb, savoring a whiff of our sailor moon inspired perfumes, checking out our hedgehog-themed products, or demolishing the Shrek bubble bars (under running water). Whether you are into gaming, anime, or just like fresh smells, there is something for everyone at our table. Times for bath bomb demos will be posted on our social media & at our booth. If you can't find us just sniff around the vendors room!
