Philosophy

Our philosophy is that CDE should be a fun and safe environment where everyone is treated cheerfully and fairly. Our founder, Evan Bailyn, is inspired by Walt Disney, whose vision was to create a truly magical experience where imaginations could freely roam and one could feel a pleasant escape from everyday life. Our visitors are young girls and we acknowledge that there are a lot of challenges in the life of a modern pre-teen, or "tween." CDE is a safe haven away from those challenges, a place where girls come to be girls and just have fun.

The type of experience we foster on CDE is largely creative. We believe that kids should feel that they have control over their entertainment experience. Dolls have always been about developing one’s identity through role-playing. We at CDE believe that the choices kids make in role-playing games impacts how they learn to socialize and the kinds of adults they become.

At CDE, we strive to empower children with choices and allow them to utilize their greatest asset: imagination.

History
