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!

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.

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.

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

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 just got our first box, and my 8-year-old loveS it! My 4-year-old has not gotten into the actual practicing of a script and says she does not want to perform the play right now (I’m guessing once we start our performance, she will be asking to get back in, haha). They both enjoyed doing all of the vocal warm ups (practicing the tongue twisters led to lots of laughter), stretches and games. I can tell we are going to have a lot of fun with future boxes.

Michelle, thank you for writing such a great review! I'm so glad your kids have been enjoying the box. I'll be sending out dates for online acting classes if this is something your 8-year-old would be interested in. The classes are free for PLACES, PLEASE! subscribers.
