Think of the whimsical world of wonderland or adventure world, some would say it’s a strange and funny looking place. That’s exactly what whimsical is, different and unquie fantasies that make you scratch your head and say “huh?!?” Whimsical could be a feel or a description to describe a place, it’s playful and weird. But a truly special idea.
