The Puppet Theater saved my Labor Day

by Stacey

This year for the Labor Day weekend we decided to take our traditional family trip up north, despite the very gloomy and chilly weather forecast! Yes, we were hopeful that the weather would surprise us with a little more sun and less rain but I was prepared for the worse case scenario!

It did end up raining for the better part of our trip which really limited our outdoor activity at the campground. Thankfully I was able to quickly combat the “I’m bored!” issue from my 4 year old by bringing along our Playmobil® My Take Along Puppet Theater!!!

The My Take Along Puppet Theater is an amazing all-in-one creativity station that helps encourage kids to use their imagination as they create their own stories and plays right there on their very own little stage!

Included in the My Take Along Puppet Theater are six different figures, changeable scenes, an assortment of accessories, and a sound box that plays four different sound effects to make your stories complete! The best part is that everything packs up neatly and quickly inside the theater which doubles as storage and a carrying case! That means you can take the puppet theater along with you anywhere!!!

While my daughter has definitely been loving the My Take Along Puppet Theater and has yet to run out of different stories to “act” out, she has already made her wish list of other Playmobil® “My Take Along” toys! Playmobil® has everything from the My Take Along Farm and Pirate Dungeon to a Knight’s Take Along Castle and a Princess Fantasy Chest! I’m sure you an guess which is at the top of my daughter’s wish list!

The My Take Along Puppet Theater and the other My Take Along products are great gift ideas, especially if you are looking for a “Back To School” gift for your preschooler! I will definitely be taking our puppet theater with us as we travel this fall and over the holidays! Each “Take Along” varies in price, ranging from $12.99 to $54.99, and are recommended for ages 4 and up.

Now your little creative playwright can entertain the whole family on those rainy or chilly fall and winter days because we are giving away one My Take Along Puppet Theater to one lucky reader (valued at $49.99)!

To enter, simply leave us a comment on this post. This giveaway is open to US shipping addresses and ends on September 24th. Please see our site’s terms and conditions for our complete contest rules.

Thank you to Playmobil® for providing a My Take Along Puppet Theater to our winner and for the puppet theater they sent my family.
