We have many step 2 items, and this caught my eye as a great tool to help my two and five year olds express themselves freely. They are inspired by the puppets and creative play involved in their own 'story making'

That aside, I discovered while assembling this *Which took twenty minutes, tops..Including sticker placement* that I was blessed with TWO sets of curtains, as well as puppets. It must have been a packing error, clearly...but none the less, I suppose I've received extras in case any damage is to occur to either curtains/puppets. Which I will add are made EXTREMELY well. Not flimsy, badly sewn, etc. Curtains are a rich, plush velour, as well as puppets. However, tho I DO have the light, I am unable to mount it because I found no hardware included. I have searched the box inside and out, as well as all pieces to see where they may have been hidden. But to no avail. I suppose for now it can do without the light, but would be nice for added play effect.

This product encourages role play, language development, cooperative play, and plain fun! It encourages development of roles as both storyteller and audience, and my grandaughters also pretend to sell popcorn, soda, and small and large tickets, so a business sense as well emerges. However, if a child hops into the stage opening, leaning forward, the item will topple over with them in the mix. This happened to my two and a half year old grandaughter, who was playing with her five year old sister, for whom this was a birthday gift. Keeping the back arms of the stage open may help minimize this risk, but the company should look into this. We were close by to help her at the time, it would have been a bigger problem if we were not, or if more kids were close by and fell on top of the theater after it toppled.

            MARY K: Yes. My twins are three now and they can both get behind it. When friends come over there is an eight year old and a six year old and they can all play just switching etc. They seem to work it out just fine! It helps that there's not anything in back like legs that extend because I think that makes a huge difference. It's light, it balances, and it's easy for them to use! Jan 8, 2014

            Daren J: It would depend on the ages of the children. Two 3 or 4 year olds- probably. 5 or 6 year olds- I don't think so. We love Step 2 and my daughter loves pretend play but this has not been our most used item. Hope this helps! Jan 8, 2014

            Annette T asked: i am concerned that the puppet theater is easily tipped over. when a child gets too excited he pushes on the back and it tips over. is there a way to put sand in it so that it wont tip? Oct 16, 2013
            Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
            Cindy S: I don't believe that there is a way to put sand in it without cutting a hole into the plastic. If you keep the doors open, like in the photo, it helps balance it a bit. We have had ours for a year and have not had it tip very often. We just ask that whoever is in front sit a bit further away so that they can see (and not get hit if it falls). We've enjoyed ours so far! Oct 17, 2013

            carla b: There is no way to put sand in unless you drill a hole and put in your own stopper. With the doors on the back for storage I'm not sure it would be worth the effort. The theater is definitely a one child show. It is very small even for one child. I bought 2 and both my granddaughters liked playing with them as long as they had an audience. Oct 17, 2013

            Richard M: We have that problem too. It seems the yellow doors help stabilize it a bit when they are open, but not completely, since they don't prevent the theater from falling onto the audience :) Oct 18, 2013
