Some time ago, we developed an astounding interactive experience for children under 5 called Ball Pond Bobby. Combining the best of children’s visual theatre performance and new models of engagement and learning through interactive play, we toured the UK and abroad winning praise from theatres, children’s festivals and early years centres alike.
At the time we offered a small book to keep and colour in, so that parents and carers could continue the engagement and creative play activities at home for as long as the child wanted. Sometimes a message would come from a parent thanking us and relating that their child was still engaging with Bobby long after they’d seen the show.
Now we are working on a book. Here is a sneak preview.
