August 2014:
Deborah Dickson - spent a great morning with my kids ages - 4, 7, 8, 10. They each chose projects, sanded them and put them together and painted them. They LOVED it and were so proud of their work! Highly recommend and the owners are lovely people!




Dovid - Went to here today was really great for kids age 4 and up. It's a woodwork building place with the worlds largest rocking house. You pay per each thing project the kids build so we had 2 kids building even though everyone was involved. It could be very expensive if each kid in a group wants to do a project but it was great. Between Natanya and Raanana.


We spent yesterday (chanukah 2013) at Sus VeAgalah wood workshop in Kadmina. 2 10 year old boys and a 13 year old girl were very happy and kept busy for nearly 4 hours. It's expensive but well worth it. You have to book in advance but I managed to call in the morning and get a spot. You don't pay for the workshop, rather you buy a wooden piece that you will assemble. 2 people help the kids with the process which includes, sanding, using screw drivers, hammers etc and then painting your piece. Probably good from age about 5-14. Prices are anywhere from 50 NIS to 330 NIS but I think the average is around 150 NIS. Kids make a quality wooden toy that they get to take home. the more expensive ones are more complicated and better for older kids. You also get a tour of the workshop and get to sit on the world's largest rocking horse. Places to sit and hang out outside. 
Review of Soosagala... (Tried to post this on the website but it wouldn't upload). A magical wood workshop for an amazing 3 hours... Our boys (5 and 3) got to chose a toy kit from a great selection- flying planes, rotating carousels, walking dinosaurs, solar powered cars... We then sanded, hammered, filed, painted, assembled over the course of 3 hours including an ice cream break whilst their 'oeuvres' dried in the sun. We had a fabulous time their, Inbal, Ofer and their team are brilliant with the kids and have created a fantastic craftsmans workshop! Highly recommended.



Sarah Kaye- Where is this located?

Joanne Winston- kadima about 10min from Netanya

Sarah Kaye -Ooh. OK - so do you think a 14 year old and a ten year old boy would like this? Or are they too old????

Joanne Winston -If they like woodwork and painting I think they'd love it... For what it's worth, I wished I could have just done my own too! They could also choose one of the more complex models...

Tracy Zeit -How much did it cost? What's their #?

Sarah Kaye- http://www.soosagala.co.il/sadna

  1. A dream came true. New Israeli record!

    After a year of working on the world’s largest rocking horse, the project has finished successfully.

    The horse is in Guinness Book of Records for 2012

    It was designed and built by Ofer Mor, wooden rocking horses master,
    a product designer who utilizes traditional methods,owner of “Soos VeAgala” (Hebrew for “horse and cart”) studio in Kadima.

    You can get to see and swing on the world’s largest rocking horse as part of the workshop for building wooden toys.
    Registration in advance only.

  2. I have taken my kids a few times to this workshop. They they have enjoyed themselves thoroughly each time, have something to show for the fun, and learn skills which entail more than thumb-flicking a small screen.
    To be honest, I thoroughly enjoy the workshops too. The available kits are constantly renewed, the atmosphere is very pleasant and the family which runs the place are helpful friendly people.
    I cannot think of a more worthwhile reasonably priced experience for kids.

  6. This Peasch we plan to Visit Sus ve Agala for the third time!
    My 2 little girls had great time, building wood toys that they play with until today!
    Another great attraction there is the biggest rocking wood hourse in the world, and if you ask the owner he might give you a ride!!

  7. If you are one of those parents or grandparents who care about your kid, and looking to spend more quality time with him or her, then you must visit Soosagala Wood Workshop. While this workshop was advertise for kids, we, the parents, enjoyed it even more. We could see the joy of learning, the creativity in selecting the colors and painting, and the dedication in finishing the rocking horse. You should see how proud he was when he shared his creation with his friends when he got home.

    I know we will be back there.
    Thank you Inbal & Ofer
