Masterpuppet Theatre (Review & Giveaway)

mpt

Closed – Congrats Hifam!

Are you a lover of classic literature and theatre?  Want to instill in your children an appreciation for one of the most well-known literary masters that is Shakespeare?  Masterpuppet Theatre is an interactive book allowing you to do just that.

Created by Michael Rogalski, the kit comes with a playbook book containing excerpts from Shakespearean plays--book

Along and 60 finger puppet cards featuring famous characters like Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, Lady Macbeth and many more--puppets

and twelve stand-up sets of castles, forests, balconies, and battle fields to provide a backdrop for where the scenes take place--backdrops

This is a great way to help kids put together the scenes in their minds before they can completely understand what’s written on the pages.  The book is recommended for kids ages 13 and up, and therefore not appropriate for my little one.  We played with the puppet cards a little before I packed up the kit for future fun.

The kit will be officially released on September 1st, but you can preorder one now for $14.95.  For you Amazon lovers, it’s also available there too.

GIVEAWAY!  One lucky reader will receive a copy of Masterpuppet Theatre!
