"Aimed at kids ages 2-5, 'Please Bring Balloons' is one of our top picks for children's theater in NYC this winter, and among the best events for preschoolers this season...It's completely interactive, making it a great option for first-time and very young theatergoers...It's a sweet, magical adventure filled with animals, balloons, music, and twinkling lights–and easily my 4-year-old's favorite show in the last year."

for a previous production "It’s never easy to successfully adapt a popular book for stage or film nor to keep a theater full of toddlers and preschoolers engaged and seated for an hour. Yet the latest stage adaptation of Eric Carle’s beloved [stories] does all that and more…It’s earnest, colorful, artsy and will hold your kid in awe for 60 solid minutes…With minimal narration, the production is a visual feast that relies on the bright colors and personalities of Carle's characters to take center stage.

"It’s a modest production in that there are just five players, and the set, props, and costumes are not as elaborate as you’ll find at larger shows, but it hits the right note for younger kids, keeping things simple, warm, and engaging...The show is also a great introduction to the 'Nutcracker' story for little kids...Just right for the preschool crowd and up, although I'm sure tutu-loving 2-year-olds could enjoy it even if they might not follow the story."
