Advantages: Easy to construct, and take apart, hard wearing and offers a choice of 2 uses.
Disadvantages: Takes up space when put together, puppets not included.
Imaginative play plays a vital role in a child's development. This toy is a traditional gift which I have found to have grown with my son. He was first given this wooden toy for Christmas when he was 5 and still plays with it two years on creating his own more complex stories. This set comes in a compact storage box and is made up of chunky pieces of wood which easily slot together following the simple instructions that are included, a plastic rail from which the fabric backdrop hangs, red velvet curtains and 2 pieces of reversible fabric -one side is a red and white striped shop front whilst the other side has a fetching blue curtain with yellow stars on it. Once erected, it is useful to find an open space to store it in where it can not easily be tripped over or knocked down due to the wooden base (onto which it balances) lies vertically and therefore is longer at the back providing a possible hazard. It is however, a good size, allowing for two children to perform together happily.
It is produced by Fiesta Crafts and has been awarded a 2007 Silver Practical Preschool Award. Puppets are not included but can be bought in fairytale sets for example 5 characters from Peter Pan and are beautifully crafted and hardwearing including Peter Pan, Tinkerbell ( a finger puppet), Captain Hook, Wendy and the crocodile. Currently, it can purchased on amazon and I believe this toy reperesents good value for money.
Summary: A clever gift which both boy's and girls will enjoy...
