Niece thrilled with her magnetic theatre!
I bought this for my niece and my sister reported back that it had gone down very well and she plays with it all the time. I am told it is a really charming, well-made toy! Thank you Bigjigs Toys!
This is a lovely little item perfect for a theatrically inclined child. Delivery was prompt. I have added some LED lighting(RGB) so any colour illumination can be tuned. (Photo on request). Also a voice changer unit as supplied as a VELLEMAN kit. Recommended. M
Contents included with this product
This magnetic theatre comes with 13 characters: little red riding hood, a wolf dressed as grandma, the woodsman, cinderella, the prince, the fairy godmother, stepmother, two stepsisters, three little pigs, and one big bad wolf (all the same size). In addition to the stage floor, curtains and wooden supporting blocks, there are three sets of scenery (one backdrop and two side pieces for the foreground for each story) - a night-time scene of cinderella's castle and carriage, a cottage in the woods for red riding hood, and three little pigs' houses against a blue sky. There are also two wooden 'wands' with red magnet platforms, and each charcter has a button magnet on the bottom.
Instantly loved theatre and game inspiration
I recently bought this for my niece's fourth birthday and it was an instant hit with her and her six year-old sister. The theatre consists of two wooden supporting blocks and various boards that slot on top to make the stage floor, backdrop, foreground scenery and curtains. The pieces aren't fixed so it's prone to dismantle on lifting, but it's also simple enough that the kids could see how to put it back together themselves and it's easy to put back in the box. The figurines are brightly coloured, sturdy and well presented - the three pigs and big bad wolf even have little felt ears. The only downsides were 1) the magnet strength to hold the figures on the 'wands' to manouvre them around the stage seemed appropriate, but the two wands held together (as kids are likely to try) produce a very strong pull which meant that on day two of playing one magnet was pulled from it's setting and we had to fetch the superglue, and 2) the four year-old found it tricky managing to hold the wand precisely flat on the underside of the stage, as if it is not flat it won't 'grab' the characters and it won't work. Having said that she enjoyed just playing with the figures on the wands without the theatre, while the six year-old was quickly an expert and had a lot of fun coming up with games other than story-telling (e.g. "close your eyes and try to find the four characters I've 'hidden' around the stage using the wand"). I'm very pleased with my purchase, but would recommend it for slightly older children due to the hand skills required and the risk of magnets coming loose.
