“Genuinely knocked all the kids’ socks off” – The Guardian

"A delightful way to spend an afternoon with little people…a great introduction for little ones to the theatre.” - Yorkshire Evening Post

"When the show finishes, my daughter, who hasn’t spoken a word except to request ice cream during the interval, looks at me, blinks, sighs and said “That was SO lovely!” My sentiments exactly.” -
