Review

Sunday evening my three year old daughter and I got the opportunity to attend Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Live at the Brown Theatre with a a good friend and her three year old son.  We arrived about 20 minutes before the show and wereb2ap3_thumbnail_12963566_10154792232464418_6847911974513476586_n.jpg happy to see that there were no long lines to pick up our tickets.  We were directed by friendly staff to an area where we could sign out booster seats to help our little ones see the show better.  While getting the seats we spotted a huge cardboard cut out of the Daniel Tiger train where the kids could pose for a picture.

We hopped in the short line for a cute photo before heading to our seats.  The kiddos were excited from the moment the show began and my three year old immediately began singing along to all the familiar Daniel Tiger Songs.  The costumes and scenery were very well done.  After about 20 minutes, both of our kiddos had moved to our laps, so the boosters didn't get much use, but they were clapping and smiling and truly having a good time.  As a mom of many, being able to take time out to do something special with just one always feels like a win!  At intermission, we tackled the bathrooms, and let the kids get a fun glow in the dark toy.  The last part of the show was a great wrap up with a sweet ending just the way each t.v. episode ends.  At 1 1/2 hours run time, including breaks I would say this is about the perfect time for the 3-5 year old attention span.  Our kiddos thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we look forward to the next show the Brown theater has to offer!
