Q: What is the last day that I can subscribe to get this month's box?Asked by Christine S., September 2020
PLACES, PLEASE! Let's Put On A Show boxes will walk your kids step-by-step through the process of putting on a play. The boxes are a series of sequential acting lessons that build on skills learned in previous boxes. Every new subscriber will receive "The Treasure Within- starter box" with their first order. This box teaches simple acting skills such as cheating out, the fourth wall, and how to have a good stage voice. It also has a character lesson on how to teach your child to be a good friend. The second box, Amazing Addy, builds on these skills and teaches kids about stage positions, creating interesting stage pictures, and pantomime. This story has a character lesson on how to teach your children to talk...
I LOVE how it inspired imagination within my three kiddos (ages 4, 6, and 8). We have tried a lot of boxes and this is one of the most fun and creative boxes we have tried!
I love the idea behind this box! My kids are always so excited for the opportunity to be the star of their own show, and this box makes it so easy! The props are fun and the story was really enjoyable. Such a great way to break-up our typical homeschool routine and add in some creative play. Best part is that the props and story can be enjoyed over and over!
Thanks for the wonderful review, Shauna! I'm so grateful and really glad you're having so much fun with it.
We love our “Places Please! Littles” box! My children (4.5 and 1.5) were immediately drawn to the colorful book and fun costume pieces. I love the way this box introduces theater to young children in an accessible way using dramatic play! It has provided us with tons of fun and exploration. This box would also make an excellent gift! It has been put together do thoughtfully. Can’t wait to get our next one!
I really appreciate the thoughtful review, Jillian! Thanks so much. :)
My daughter and I really enjoyed our first Places Please LITTLES Box! As an actor-mom currently on hiatus from my career as I raise my family, this was the perfect way to share my love for the theatre with my children. There were aspects of theatre other than acting that were touched on (props, scenery, costumes). The costume pieces are HANDMADE which is incredibly impressive. This box was packed! The value, quality and whimsy of everything included is so worth it. My daughter loved the pirate theme, loved decorating her pirate hat and patch, building her pirate flag and decorating her wall with the glow in the dark stars for the scenery. This box is perfect for younger kids, they are able to let their imaginations fly (oh to be young again). The book was a tad advanced for my 5 year old but there were plenty of different scenes that we could play out. The Pinterest board with ideas and suggestions is helpful as well! I can't wait for the next one!
Yvonne, thank you so much for your wonderful review! I'm happy the "Littles" Imaginative Play Box provided entertainment and fun for you and your children!
Love, love, LOVE! So well put together, with bright colors and thoughtful touches. My almost 4yr old and I had a blast together. I appreciated all the great content which helped nurture creativity and dramatic play. We were inspired to make our own props as well and find things around the house to add to our costumes and include in our big show. Definitely something we will continue to play with too, it’s like compiling our own dress up and make believe trunk! We can’t wait for our next box.
Lauren, thank you so much for this wonderful review! The photos you posted on Instagram of your and your "Little's" experience were priceless. I'm so happy you had so much fun with this box. Next month, I'll be introducing puppets in the box!
Worst ever ... hoping someone can call me 617-869-6932 or I will have to pass on my comments to my student teachers in my Practicum courses in graduate education program . Lack of customer service availability is unacceptable!!!!
Carol, it was wonderful to talk with you today. I was happy to receive feedback from someone with your level of expertise. As I mentioned in our conversation, I will be sending a PLACES, PLEASE! Littles box to your Grandsons tomorrow. I hope that the Place Please! Littles box will stimulate their imaginations and provide hours of creative enjoyment. Thanks again for investing your time with me today.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Emily!
Pure creativity! My kids have missed their theater class since covid hit and this box has been amazing. My 5 and 8 yr old dictated a script based on the story (jot it down style a la bravewriter and I wrote it out. Rehearsed lines, came up with props ans costumes using stuff we had on hand and that came in the box. They included my little one too. I loved that they included warm ups, costume ideas, nd more in the box. Super impressed
Wonderful review, Lindsay! I'm so grateful that you took the time to share. I'm excited about the next boxes. I think you'll like them!
My kids were so excited to get their second box of props and script, and while I don't have any photos to share we have definitely enjoyed the time that the girls have spent with these and how they've been inspired to create their own original plays as well.
Howard, thanks for the review. The video you sent of your girls rehearsing "Amazing Addy" is still one of my favorites! "PLACES, PLEASE!" :)
This review is for the PLACES PLEASE for littles box. My children are age 4 and 6. We absolutely loved this box!!! You can tell that each item in the box was carefully selected to add to the experience. It came with a parent guide which made it easy to navigate through the box. The box is themed with the story book inside. My kids loved all the costumes, making props, imaginative play, the story book, and performing for the family. We had so many hours of fun with this box. We can’t wait to get our next box and create more fun memories together. It would make a fun experience gift and we plan to gift a subscription to friends for the holiday season.
Thank you for the review, Shana! I'm so happy you're having fun with this box.
