The Guidecraft Wooden Tabletop Theater ($59.95) is a wonderful additional to our drama class and for creative play. This wonderful product is an excellent way to encourage children to let their imagination soar as they role play and act out their favorite shows. The puppet theater has been extremely popular with young children and it has lots of engaging features to keep children engaged such as a clock with moveable hands, a cotton canvas with side curtains that has Velcro so it can be open and closed and a mesh storage pocket to keep puppets organized and secure.

The puppet theater is made of durable wood and it sits atop a tabletop securely as we had no issues with it falling over during the show. It is very easy for the child to set it up to practice for the “big show” and I love that it folds up flat. Therefore, it can be stored away easily when not in use and it does not take up a lot of space.

I like that the Marquis can be set to the colorful “Puppet Theatre” or the other side features a chalkboard so that the child(ren) can “Create-Your-Own-Theme”. Guidecraft takes great pride in the details and this product is no exception….it is really a wonderful addition to our classroom.

The children had fun developing their characters and story line and then invited us to the first showing. It is a great resource to teach them how to work together cooperatively. We enjoyed watching them follow their script and improvise along the way making it even more fun. They were beaming with pride as they took a bow during curtain call.
