I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Theater Thursday - Pip's Island

We were given free tickets to Pip's Island for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.
What: Pip's Island

Where: Skylight Modern
             527 W. 27th St.
             New York, NY

Who:Ages 5-9

When: Now through January 8, 2016
Me - Pip's Island was very unique. It's not a show you just sit down and watch. You move from room to room and interact with the actors. Little kids would like it a lot especially if they like to participate in things. Older children would be bored unless they like hanging around cute little kids. The story of the show was exciting for little kids but boring for older kids. The object was to earn 5 spark badges. The badges were Investigate, Activate, Build, Imagine, and Connect. Kids even get to wear vests that lights up when you earn a badge. The vests were kind of ugly, but it was cool the way they lit up. The acting was good. The actors interacted well with the kids. The sets and props were very original. Over all, it was a great show for little kids.

Mom - Pip's Island is the story of Pip and his friends, Pebble and Finn who are trying to rescue  Pip's Island's Guardian Amperes Wattson and save the island from the evil Joules Volter.  This is a great show for little kids who would prefer to be a part of the show rather than just sit in a seat and watch. In fact, there is no stage and there are no seats. The show is completely interactive and constantly on the move. It is also only an hour long so it is great for young children's short attention spans. The show is not only an entertainment experience but a learning one as well as children are given the opportunity to use their brains and their knowledge to solve problems along the way throughout the show. However, they are easy enough problems that are not too taxing for a young child's brain and will not frustrate them. The show has actually been designed with educational experts to incorporate the latest curriculum guidelines and play trends. The show is a great way for kids to learn and have fun at the same time. It is not a good show for older children who would probably be bored. It is also not a good show for children who scare very easily as there are elements in the show such as loud noises and the evil character of Joules Volter that may frighten them. Children who like superheros would probably love it though because it would make them feel like a superhero participating in the show.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Funtivity Friday.
