My Little One, who is growing up so fast, and 7 years old now has loved Toopy & Binoo for as long as I can remember. I am pretty sure that we own every single DVD and CD that is out. She also has he own Patchy Patch that gets the honor of sleeping with her every single night.
As my Little One gets older, I put the responsibility on her to help me review live entertainment for kids. This time around her assignment was the newest Toopy & Binoo live show called Fun and Games.
So what did both myself and my Little One think of Toopy & Binoo Fun and Games? We both thought it was a great show that kids of all ages could relate to.
The zaniness continues as best friends, Toopy and Binoo, return to the live stage in a brand new theatrical production, Toopy and Binoo: Fun and Games. Filled with whimsical exuberance, families across Canada will dance and sing-along with Koba Entertainment’s newest musical extravaganza!
The dynamic duo perfectly blends optimism, imagination, and spontaneity in their quest to find the best game ever! The story unfolds as a toy chest full of mismatched game and puzzle ignites a curious imagination: watch as Toopy and Binoo dance with X’s and O’s; wiggle with smiling snakes; try to outwit a gang of dancing ladders.
Along with tea-partying cats, energetic Dusteroo’s and fun-loving sheep, Toopy and Binoo embark on their wackiest and most interactive adventure yet!
Entertaining and unpredictable, Toopy and Binoo: Fun and Games integrates music, theatre, dance, puppetry and innovative multimedia technology to create an off-the-wall experience that will delight the entire family!
My Little One thought that it was great how the show included so many of the other familiar characters. There were dusteroos, white sheep, black sheep, 6 eyed purple monster, blue elephant, and more. All these familiar characters help to bring the story to life.
There was a ton of singing, dancing, and audience participation that made the show interactive and fun. The show really left smiles on all the kids faces as you took a look around the audience.
My Little One was impressed with the new items for sale instead of having the same things that were at previous shows. It was also nice that the items for sale matched the theme of the show.
We had never sat in in the balcony for a show, ever, as we normally have seats a few rows from the stage. At first I was worried about our seats, but we could see perfectly from up high looking down. We all felt that we could see the entire stage better than being up really close.
My Little One and I were pretty impressed with some of the stage decorations. I always also love the screen that they have on stage to help bring the story to life.
There was a wide age range of children at the Toopy & Binoo Fun and Games show that we went to. My Little One and her friend that she brought along were by far not the oldest. From the other kids I saw at the show, I would say that there were a few kids there who were about 9 years old and they were also leaving the show with smiles on their face.
I think Toopy & Binoo is a very fun show and great characters. I am glad that my Little One still loves attending this shows and now in her role of reporting back to me on her thoughts.
Reporter Little One thinks that kids of all ages will love Toopy & Binoo Fun and Games especially because the games that they explore are all familiar. Their quest for the best game is funny and entertaining and left us leaving wanting to play snakes and ladders. 🙂
If you want good, family entertainment then both myself and my Little One recommend that you go check out Toopy & Binoo Fun and Games.
