Fun show with lots of audience participation, great for families. The male storyteller was very good, inventive and exciting but it did seem that the two female story tellers were still learning their craft.
As kids love to get picked to join in, I would suggest choosing several different children to limit disappointment rather than using one child for 2 or 3 different roles.

A must see show for families! 3 performers take the audience on fantastical adventures through improvised stories fully involving members of the audience to take part on stage. This is a proper feel good children's show but plenty of laughs for the adults too as no one is too big or old to get involved. The best thing about this show is how it inspires the children's imagination, no suggestions are wrong, the wonderful performers just make it work. And the beauty of the show is that it'll be a completely different show every day! Go see.

The happiest show in Edinburgh! Unlike many kid’s shows it doesn’t patronise or talk down. It hits the target demographic right in their hearts and treats them intelligently, intellectually and with respect.
