    How do you actually purchase the kit or the DVD? I cannot find the link on this site or the Little brownie site.

    • Contact a GSMW service center, or call 1-800-736-5243 (ext. 2001) and talk to Jami. Request a Sleepover Kit and/or a DVD. She will take down the information. The kit is being offered by GSMW not Little Brownie. If you prefer, you can email Jami at the GS store – Jamif@gsmw.org. Please let me know if you have additional questions.
