Imagine a miniature city – its streets lined with decorative lamp posts and colourful store fronts. Complete with a hospital, a pizzeria, a grocery store, a theatre – all of the amenities of a real-life metropolis, with the buildings of the tiny town reaching no higher than 6 feet tall. All it takes is one ingredient to bring this magical city to life: imagination.
