The Tiger Who Came to Tea – no, not the book, the live version!


We love books at our house … Charlie Moo (4yrs) has been known to recite to his sisters Megan (2yrs) and Olive (our new baby) the gruffalo word for word on many an occasion.  So a trip to the theatre was also a lovely treat for us, without the stinky girls …. plus it was on the pier so an ice-cream and walk on the beach was a must ;)  Although I love this story , The Tiger Who Came to Tea, we don’t actually own a copy nor am I even sure if he has read it before.   So it was turning into the ultimate treat … (thank you Little Stuff!)

The play was on for 55 minutes no interval, which I did worry might be a tad long for Moo but he loved it (and secretly so did I .. ssshhh) The characters were so engaging I totally got lost in the moment myself!  I did wonder how a children’s book could fill the time but with some clever activities such as the clock counting the day away (I loved hearing all the children shouting 1 o’clock, 2 o’clock ….) a an awesome tiger dance (moo was too cool to participate in this though) and lots of singing not only did the time fly but I was a bit gutted it was over!

I would fully recommend ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’  definitely gets a big thumbs up from Moo (and me … I have found myself humming along to some of the super catchy songs!) Check out the trailer here.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.

  1. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who
    was conducting a little homework on this.

    And he in fact ordered me dinner due to the fact that I discovered it for him.
    .. lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!
    ! But yeah, thanx for spending time to discuss this subject here on your internet site.
